Graphs and hyper graphs are extensively used to describe various concepts in database technology-ranging from data modeling to data processing. In this paper, a method for transforming a relational database to a graph database model is described. In this approach, the dependency graphs for the entities in the system are transformed into star graphs. This star graph model is transformed into a hyper graph model for the relational database, which, in turn, can be used to develop the domain relationship model that can be converted in to a graph database model.
