    Data Modeler Tutorial

    774041
      I've been using other tools for years, but just today saw Sql Developer Data Modeler. I will be using it here a lot. Is there a tutorial or guide that explains how it work, what the display is, etc? It looks just a little different from Er/Studio or Erwin.

          Hi,

          Here are few links

          https://apex.oracle.com/pls/apex/f?p=44785:24:1655650640765601::NO:24:P24_CONTENT_ID,P24_PREV_PAGE:5219,2

          http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/datamodeler/whitepapers-224536.html

          There is more if you search in Oracle page

            There are also some more demos and videos at http://apex.oracle.com/pls/apex/f?p=44785:2:1229704784185701:FORCE_QUERY::2,CIR,RIR:P2_TAGS:Data%20Modeler

            And there's also the Data Modeler documentation at http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E25259_01/doc.31/e25257/toc.htm
            (or you can access this from the Documentation link on Data Modeler's Start Page (displayed using the Start Page option on the Help menu).

              Some of this is good stuff. But for a person who literally saw the screen of Sql Developer Data Modeler for the first time yesterday, there is nothing I've found in any of this that shows how to add an entity, describe an entity, set data types, add relationships, etc. I don't need to know how to do new things with the tool, and I don't need to know how to model. I just need instruction on how to use this tool. And even the docs are weak on that I think.

                i think no

                look at Data Modeler Concepts and Usage http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E25259_01/doc.31/e25257/data_modeling.htm#i1013610
                from above

                You can use Data Modeler to create, edit, and delete objects at different hierarchy levels in different kinds of models. Many objects have similar properties, and the methods for performing operations are usually consistent and intuitive

                  If you are in a diagram look at the icons in the upper left on the toolbar. Hover over the icons to see what they are (like New Entity, etc...)
