    Designer installation would come with a tutorial. I didn't have time to play with that much.

    it is not helpful at all.

    by the way , if u are not very familar with oracle designer,
    what would u do if you are required to modify the structure of the database? just use notepad and sqlplus?
    is this actually a lot of dba's approach?

    Personally, I would suggest buying a real tool, like ERwin, Power Designer, Visio, etc. Personally, I would flatly refuse to maintain a data model without a proper tool , but that's just me .

    I most of the time prefer to do things in the old way, yes, vi/emacs, SCCS and sqlplus. I have used the designer in the past, its is really a helpful too from a development point of view. But some of the stuffs like webserver generator and etc, I didn't like much, because, it ties my hand to do things by the way it wants and not by the way I want. Even now I was trying to install the tool for one of my developers and had been noticing that it seem to eat up when disk space is concerned. That might be because it has advanced over the period of time.

    I too found the books from the Oracle not helpful to the extent. As I said earlier, I haven't looked into the tutorial to pass my opinion on it.
