I use PlantUML a lot in sketching out initial designs for systems etc. I kind of hacked together diagrams for database design until recently I needed something a bit more robust, so tackled it head on. The results is https://github.com/chippyash/db-plantuml .
I'm currently working on a utility to convert the physical diagram into DDL to create the database schema.
Is this of interest to others?
I'd appreciate feedback on what is done so far.
