ENTERPRISE COMPUTING: NEW PRODUCT
Use 4Keeps to revamp an RDBMS
A.D. Experts Inc.'s 4Keeps 2.2 can reverse- and forward-engineer existing relational databases via the Unified Modeling Language or other methodologies.
The Ann Arbor, Mich., company's application works with Microsoft Visio 2000 Professional and the earlier Visio versions 4.5 and 5.0 to graphically model Microsoft Corp., Oracle Corp. and Sybase Inc. relational database structures for knowledge management applications.
The Keeper repository, integrated with Visio, permits reuse of objects and automatically synchronizes them. The Inspector finds and hyperlinks any violations. The Transformer generates new Structured Query Language. The ShapeShifter converts a database format to one of 10 methodology styles.
A single-user license is $349. The software runs under Microsoft Windows 9x, Windows NT and Windows 2000 and must be installed in the same directory as Visio Professional. It requires 32M of storage.
