I’m considering buying Toad Data Modeler out of my own pocket for a pet project and have some initial questions. I’ve got one chunk of dough to spend on data modeling and that’s all I’ve got, so I have to make the right purchase.
Assuming you’re trying to do the formal thing and start with a logical model, generate the physical model from that, and then generate the code from the physical model: if you make specific hand-done changes to the physical model (which one might do for any number of reasons), does the logical model preserve them the next time you generate the physical model from the logical?
Lastly, my decision has come down to either Toad Data Modeler or XCase. Does anyone here have the knowledge to compare and contrast the two for me?
Thanks in advance.
