Depending on your needs there is pretty good functionality on JDeveloper for 
this,not sure how it would scale to large schema's, I mever tried it. You can 
make an offline schema and then as part of that create an ER diagram, its good 
at drawing it out, I used it last year to do a graphical representaion of a 
really suspect view in Peoplesoft, it was a flagship of bad when JDeveloper 
drew it

I don't think what you're looking to do is one of the strengths of Toad for
Oracle v9.6.  For a "whole database", you'll most likely want a dedicated
modeling tool.  Many of the available tools are listed here:

already have), with which I have done what you are requesting.  I'll leave
it up to you to judge for yourself.  I'm sure your Quest rep can get you

I have TOAD profession version 9.6.  I checked around Toad and can NOT find
"reverse engineer" function in it.  What I want is tool can get 'whole
database" master-detail relationship and draw a graphic.

Does anyone know Toad can do it?

If NOT any "free" tool an do it?
