Offical team blog for SSDT, a tool for on and off-premise database development
Today is a big day for the team: we are proud to announce that SQL Server Developer Tools, code-named "Juneau", CTP3 is finally available to the public!
To prepare for this launch, we have completedly revamped our MSDN Data Developer Center. You can click the big “Get It” button to use WebPI to install our bits. In addition, you will find the followings:
Give us a try and let us know what you think!
The SQL Server Developer Tools, Code-named "Juneau" Team
Congratulations to everyone, this might be one of the most important steps for the developers. Juneau shows a lot of great potential ! :)
Thank you Niko! We hope you will like the product. Don't forget to give us feedback in the forum, or log Connect bugs.
Congratulations... May I add that it would be helpful if there was a 'find' textbox at the top-right which could pull up stored procedures, views, functions, in a database and display the results in a dialog that when a result was clicked would instantly pull up the code for the said item. This would be instead of having to click on the Object Explorer tree and sifting through 200+ stored procedures in a large db. Even the filter is a pain because it usually is only needed once, but it always turns on and stays on until you turn it off.
Basically this functionality would be akin to 'find all' in Visual Studio .
IS there an installer not based on WebPI? Just a plain old MSI/EXE that can be downloaded once and then applied to multiple machines.
Any timeline on when the bits for Entity Framework Integration will be released?
I am extremely impressed with the entire integration. Love the intellisense and ca't wait for the diagram plugin. Offline, compare, SurceSafe, etc are all priceless! :) Excellent job development team!!!
Where are you guys consolidating bug info? Thanks!
Can I use Juneau for database deployment? Is there any loss of functionality when I convert a Visual Studio 2010 database project to the new Juneau project template?
Thanks for all the feedback folks.
In answer to some specifics:
1. Multiple-machine installation: We are working on providing a facility to allow creation of an administrative install point for cases where companies wish to provide a drop for users to install from inside their firewall. We hope to make this available in a future release
2. If you have specific Bugs, they can be raised via connect.microsoft.com/.../Feedback - for more general feedback we encourage the use of our Forum at social.msdn.microsoft.com/.../threads
3. Using SQL Server Developer Tools, Code-named "Juneau" for deployment - yes, you can deploy both directly, to a SQL Script for review by a DBA, or via DAC.
4. Losses when converting to a SQLPROJ from a DBPROJ? At present there is no equivalent for the DB Unit Testing, Data Generation or Data Compare features in SSDT's SQLPROJ.
We also have an FAQ at msdn.microsoft.com/.../hh322942 which will help answer many questions.
wanted to join in the forum and find out more about juneau. However I have major issues with the RSS who has decided to use the shh on my Mac and take over my computer. If you could please give me a call or send and email I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-685-2424.
