Automatic Documenation

How can you create an Entity Relationship diagram automatically from the structure of the Oracle database? Other databases have tools to do this such as PostgresSQL Autodoc and MySQL Workbench.

I got some advice from some people for products to try. One of them is Schema Spy. Another is Enterprise Architect. A final one is DB Visualizer. Right now I use tools to execute SQL. Somebody else on the database team generates documentation from the database. However I don’t think they use any specialized tools. I think they either user Oracle tools, or some custom written scripts to do the work.

Our documentation is mainly text information on the database. This is normally based on the data dictionary. But it would be nice to have some fancier ER diagrams to use and show off. It might be time to ask for some new software to be purchased.
