Planning a database with MySQL Workbench
A small database is easy to plan on paper, but the structure quickly becomes more complex as you add more elements. MySQL Workbench can help you keep the tables arranged.
A vast number of software applications require some form of database. The more complex the project, the more complicated, time-consuming, convoluted, and error-prone the structures of the matching databases become. Software manufacturers are aware of this problem, which explains the plethora of tools for visual database planning and generation.
