PostgreSQL Repository

Creating a PostgreSQL database is beyond the scope of this User Guide - refer to your PostgreSQL documentation for assistance.

Having created your PostgreSQL database, use the SQL script provided by Sparx Systems to create the required table definitions for Enterprise Architect. You can obtain the scripts from the Sparx Systems website, on the:

Registered Corporate edition Resources page (Registered users)
Corporate edition Resources page (Trial users)

Third Party Tools

If you are unfamiliar with PostgreSQL and DBMS systems in general, you might want to consider a suitable front end tool. One such tool is pgAdminIII,  It provides a convenient graphical user interface to enable creation of databases, execution of scripts and restores.

After creating a PostgreSQL data repository in Enterprise Architect, you must set up the PostgreSQL and PostgreSQL ODBC drivers.
