    Question anyone heard of this?

    Hi folks,

    just wanted to ask if anyone has had any experience with this site i came across the other day: www.centralsoftwareinc.com. they have an online tool for designing and building databases for SQL Server that i tried out, which i thought was kind of cool.

    it's a graphical database designer similar to ERWin and other data modeling apps, except that the whole thing runs in a browser. basically you just choose what objects, properties, and relationships you want, and then you can download a wizard that builds your db.

    anyway, has anyone here had any experience with them, or anything similar?

    thanks!

    I've never heard of them. I like ERWin more everytime I use other tools. I would run this by any company you work for before using this tool. I don't like the idea of doing modeling online which means they have my data model. This is the property of the company you're modeling for.

    The post looks like thinly disguised SPAM to me. That is one site I'll be avoiding.
    If it's not practically useful, then it's practically useless.
