UML has been accepted in both academia and industry as a de facto modeling language to develop software systems. As relational databases are widely used for developing software systems, thus, it is a challenge to derive relational tables from designed models ,In this paper, is building tool in C# language to designing a relational database system based on Object Oriented Analysis and Design that class diagram, by create the document xml that extract from class diagram, based on class name, attributes name , data type the relationships among the classes, multiplicity, Inheritance , And this concepts are not supported in the relational database Therefore , use is algorithm and rules to translate the relational database
