MySQL Workbench provides extensive capabilities for creating and manipulating database models, including these:
Create and manipulate a model graphically
Reverse engineer a live database to a model
Forward engineer a model to a script or live database
Create and edit tables and insert data
This is not an exhaustive list. The following sections discuss these and additional data-modeling capabilities.
The Home window is the typical starting point for work with data modeling. In the Data Modeling section of the Workspace, you can use the action items there to create and manage models, forward and reverse engineer, and compare and synchronize schemata:
Open an Existing EER Model
Create new EER Model
Create EER Model from Existing Database
Create EER Model from SQL Script
The following sections describe these action items.
