By Song Zhou, Chuanxi Xu, Hui Wu, Jing Zhang, Yuehua Lin, Juanqin Wang, Jeff Gray and Barrett Bryant


Eclipse is a Java integrated development environment (IDE) and tool integration platform that offers numerous extension points for customization through a plug-in architecture. This paper describes the design of an Eclipse plug-in called E-R Modeler. As a database design toolkit, the E-R Modeler provides an E-R (Entity-Relationship) diagram development environment that supports XML and DDL (Database Definition Language) generation tools. It also provides database connection and schema creation capabilities. As an Eclipse plug-In, it offers multiple extension points for other applications to build upon
