DB-MAIN is a data-modeling and data-architecture tool. It is designed to help developers and analysts in most data engineering processes. First conceived as part of a research, development and technology transfer project initiated in 1991 by the LIBD Laboratory (University of Namur), DB-MAIN has been largely extended and distributed worldwide.
As a data-modeling tool, DB-MAIN supports engineering and reverse engineering of data models. DB-MAIN also includes meta-modeling components that allow its users to develop new functions and extend its repository, these are powerful components that other similar tools rarely or never offer.
DB-MAIN is suitable for professionals, education and research.

THE MODELING FRAMEWORK
DB-Main is a modeling framework - a meta modeling framework - a toolbox to support Information System engineering.
NEED TO MODEL — THINK « DB-MAIN »
Our modeling tool enables you to treat information at different levels of abstraction :
- a conceptual model : a semantic description of the Information System, regardless of how the technology is implemented.
- a logical model : a technical description of the Information System relating to a particular technology.
- a physical model : a technical description of the Information System relating to a specific implementation.
Application developers usually work at the level of the logical model whereas database administrators will typically be concerned with the physical model.
