DBpro 2008 Features & GDR RRS feed

  • Question

  •  Hey,
    We are looking at DBPro again I have some general questions:

    1. There is no Designer in DBpro.  You still need to use Visio, Erwin, ADO.Net Enity tool, VS Server explorer or SQL Mgt Studio to create data models after which you update a test database and resync the changes with your DBpro project.

    2. There seems to be no table designer as well and you need to use the tools in 1 or update the sql text files  directly?

    3. There is no Intellisense in DBPro and but if you use Mgt Studio you get intellisence but this only works for SQL 2008 databases.

    4. If a schema is changed for a table (like column renames)  the data migration scripts will need to be manually coded.

    5. If the GDR is feature complete, do we still install the power tools for the items that are not in the GDR?
