Simplified way to connect with DBMS repositories

Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect 16 introduces a New “Native Connection” method to both 32 and 64-bit versions in addition to the existing connection methods that require separate ODBC or OLEDB drivers to be installed.

Enterprise Architect 16 makes the simplest and recommended way to establish connections with existing and new repositories like:

  • Firebird
  • MariaDB
  • MySQL
  • Oracle
  • PostgreSQL
  • SQL Server

Native Connection does not require the need for installation of drivers for individual DBMS and DSN definitions.

Enter the details of the database in the Native Connection window and connect Enterprise Architect to it.

    Access: Start Page > Open Project | Server Connection


Start Page > Manage Projects > Connect to Server (on drop-down arrow, Select Native Connection)
