DbDesigner is a useful tool for constructing databases in an intuitive and easy-to-use environment, where you have a visual representation of the tables and relations contained in your project. You can quickly see the fields in a table or how each table relates to the others. After you are finished, it can export the schema of the database into an .sql script, or directly connect to a database backend and build it there. It can also import already existing databases from .sql scripts or db backends. It can save your project into its native format (XML) so all information is kept, and it has a plugin architecture to be easily extensible to work with many database servers (it comes with 2 plugins for PostgreSQL and MySQL).
