Druid project is a tool that allows users to create databases in a graphical way. The user can add tables, fields, folders to group tables and can modify most of the database options that follow the SQL-92 standard.

In addition to sql options, the user can document each table and each field with HTML information. Once the database is created, the druid can generate:

HTML documentation: for all tables, with browsing facilities
PDF documentation: for all tables
Java classes: (one class for each table) that contain tables' constants (such as fields size) plus java code added by the user
A data dictionarythat contains all tables and fields present in the database
SQL script which contains all table definitions that can be piped to the DBMS
And much more info...

Here are some key features of "Druid":
Graphical editing
Tables groupable in a hierarchy
Extended generation capabilities including HTML documentation, Data Dictionary, SQL script, Java classes
Custom datatypes for the database that are mapped into real DBMS datatypes
Revision history and automatic build increment
Custom java code for each table
Table summary
Table editing facility
Automatic table localization for multi-language applications
Cut & Paste

What's New in This Release:
The Oracle and Postgres SQL generation modules were improved.
The passwords in the configuration file were scrambled.
A NoClassDefFoundError was fixed in the OJB module.
A problem with CREATE OR REPLACE TRIGGER was fixed.
