[Tips] ER Diagram - Part 1
You can draw ER Diagrams in JUDE/Professional (version 3.2 or higher).

To create an ER Diagram, go to [Diagram] - [ER Diagram] in the main menu.
An ER Diagram will be created under ER Model.

IDEF1X & IE notations are supported.
Notations can be selected in the ER Diagram property view.

JUDE also supports logical name / physical name, entity categories (Resource/Summary/Event).

[Add Domain]
To add a domain, go to [Add Domain] in the Domain Package or Domain popup menu in the structure tree.

[Set ER Datatype]
Data type can be added, deleted or edited.

- Go to [Tool] - [ER Diagram] - [Set ER Datatype]
- Select [Set ER Datatype] in the popup menu of ER Model in the structure tree.

[Export SQL]
To export SQL from ER Diagram, go to [Tool] - [ER Diagram] - [Export SQL]

[Entity Definition Report]
To export Entity definition report to an Excel file, go to [Tool] - [ER Diagram] - [Export Entity Definition Report]

Output items and the order of items can be set as a template of an Entity definition report. To create a new template, go to [New Template] in Export Entity Definition Report Dialog. In addition, you can add any items to your template file (an excel file).

For example, you can add date to a template file and export it as an Entity definition report.

Entity definition reports can be handed in to your clients as documents or artifacts.
