The databrowser lets you browse your data graphically. Navigate dependencies in no time and see how your data is connected.

With the tablebrowser you get a detailed view of a browsed entity set. You can apply filters and limit the entity set’s size.

Dependency trees are pre-defined dependency path that you can open in the databrowser. They help you to get very fast to the required information.

Select an entity in any browser and the selection will be propagated to all other open browsers depending on the specified references. E.g. the foreigh keys of an RDBMS.

Browse data that is distributed between different data source by just creating user-defined dependencies between the entity classes.

Create user-defined dependencies between entity classes while you are browsing and use them immediately to connect your data. User defined-dependencies can also connect data between different data source, as you might need when working with multiple interoperating applications or in a microservice architecture.

You can add attributes that are derived from other attributes to increase your analysis options. E.g. using SQL functions or even subselects.

Derived attributes can also be used as source or target attributes in user-defined dependencies.

Export entities into the most used formats like DBUnit XML and Flat-XML, SQL Scripts or Excel Files.

The story of Datanect

Hi, my name is René Link and I'm the inventor and developer of Datanect.

As an independent software developer I'm usually confronted with two main issues.

First, I have to understand a new database very quickly.
Second, I have to verify that data is properly connected after I implemented a feature
Third, I have to write good tests to deliver stable and reliable software.

Therefore I need a way to easily analyse data and extract them for integration testing purposes or for domain expert reviews.

Datanect is my answer to a software developer's needs. I started the implementation at the end of 2016 and today Datanect is mature enough to help you too. Datanect is a tool from a software developer for software developers and testers. I believe that Datanect will ease your workdays and save you time.
