Exporting ER diagram outside of Intellij? OutOfMemory :(

Hey all,

Does anyone know if its possible to export the ER diagram that IDEA generates to a gif/png etc. OUTSIDE of IDEA? No matter how much ram I give to idea I get an OOM without seconds of trying to export the diagram.

Otherwise - is it possible to export the diagram as a raw yfiles file I could load into yED or something?

I've been trying this both under Idea 7 and 8 EAPs to know joy :(

Hello Mark,

Hey all,

Does anyone know if its possible to export the ER diagram that IDEA
generates to a gif/png etc. OUTSIDE of IDEA? No matter how much ram I
give to idea I get an OOM without seconds of trying to export the
diagram.

Otherwise - is it possible to export the diagram as a raw yfiles file

Small diagrams with about 10 entities are exported fine for me. Is it the
same for you?

I understand that real world diagrams are larger, just trying to find out,
is this OOME the scalability issue or some unknown bug.

Sorry for the delay...

Theres around 70 entities in the model - we managed to get it exported on a windows machine, the png was around 10k/10k pixels in size.

What would really help is being able to export the yFiles graph file instead of a .png.

Then I could open the graph directly in yED or something.
