My comment is not relevant to this blog post. We have a problem with SQL Server Data Tools in SQL 2012. Previously, in SQL 2008 Business intelligence within an integration service project we had a "Data Source Views" folder and we could use a wizard to create those views. In SQL 2012 data tools it is only available in Analysis Service projects, so I got confused how can we use that feature in integration packages?
