Oracle Designer 10g Release 2 is the latest stable release which is shipped with Oracle Developer Suite 10g Release 2. Designer incorporates support for business process modeling, systems analysis, software design and system generation. Oracle Designer provides a multi-user repository based on Oracle SCM, and is closely integrated with Oracle Forms Developer, Oracle's declarative database application development tool. In this way, Designer allows organizations to design and rapidly deliver scalable, client/server systems that can adapt to changing business needs.
This product has reached its end of life and is now in "sustaining support" only.
Please refer to the Oracle Lifetime Support Policy for details.
For alternative modeling and design tools have a look at Oracle JDeveloper or Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler
