9.3.5 Documenting the sakila Database

This chapter highlights the capabilities of MySQL Workbench as a documentation tool using the sakila database as an example. This is a sample database provided by MySQL that you can find by visiting the page, selecting the Other Docs tab, and looking in the Example Databases section

An EER diagram provides a quick overview and understanding of a database. Rather than reading through table definition statements, a quick glance at an EER diagram indicates how tables are related.

You can also see how tables are related; what the foreign keys are and what the nature of the relationship is.
