No, Conzilla doesn't support connections to databases, everything is
based on triples and it would require a triple store instead.

Even if Conzilla had support for random RDF sources it wouldn't work,
the visual information for displaying a conceptual model would be
missing (which could be solved by using an algorithm for arranging
concepts automatically in a map).

Feel free to contribute some code, everything is Open Source.

Best regards,
Hannes

Would be cool to have a "plugin" for ConZilla which generates a map
from a mysql schema :-)

*hint*hint* Alessandro ;-)

At least I haven't come across a good f/oss tool which visually
represents schemas from an existing design, very well (dia had some
support for doing it the other way around I think, but it was
complex/ugly/both last I tried it a few years ago).

Best,
Steinn
