As a STARTING POINT for your implementation using ADOxx, here are all the resources needed to develop a modelling toolkit for Peter Chen's ER standard for describing a database in an abstract way. Further details on the underlying standard can be found at the following sources:

The following steps are covered by the case description, focusing on the technical artefacts needed to implement/extend/modify a realized modelling approach on ADOxx
The outcome of the realization case for ER is made available in this section. An installation archive (300 MB) is provided for installation of a modelling toolkit that supports ER modelling according to Peter Chen's specification.
In this section the steps necessary for preparing the implementation of an approach/research advance based upon ER standard are described.
BUILD YOUR OWN ER MODELLING TOOL
Build your own modelling tool upon the results of the implementation phase, the service to package these results in an installable archive is introduced.
