    Maintaining data dictionary

    What enterprise tools do you use to maintain the data dictonary pertaining to each application's database? Eg. what's the columns for and relationships between tables? Using all_comments system table is not possible for end users. Also it would be great if this tool can be used against different rdbms like oracle or sqlserver
