during a “development environment down” at my customers site I checked how to make eyecatching figures out of entities and relationships reported from my repository.

Found http://www.graphviz.org/Documentation/dotguide.pdf which looks impressing. Prizewinning to show the code next to the rendered figure. And the example on 16 misses just a couple of connections, the erst is done in less than a page of definitions.

Success, Uli

Just define the relations in a textfile and let the tool do the rest is a great help.

Graphviz is great for graphs, especially when you don’t mind if software reorders nodes.

For Mac users an expensive, but nice program for making figures is OmniGraffle. If you want to spend less, GNOME Dia is also very useful.

Graphviz is an absolutely amazing tool. Since the input is a text file, it’s extremely easy to automate graph creation, and there exist Graphviz interfaces for most languages so that you can programmatically create graphs.
