Graphviz to do the graphing.
The details for the graphing statements can be extracted from tables such as USER_CONS_COLUMNS. The graphviz dot language is extremely simple, you can get a basic graph with statements such as
DEPARTMENTS -> EMPLOYEES ; DEPARTMENTS -> LOCATIONS ; EMPLOYEES -> DEPARTMENTS ;
The "record" format is more involved, but can make nodes that look pretty much like a regular ERD. Received on Fri Sep 18 2009 - 19:53:26 CDT
