Thanks -- the content was very good.  The format, however, (I'm sure not the fault of the author) made the article unprintable, and difficult to read on screen. At least my hand-eye coordination is poor enough that having to scroll way to the right to follow a line of text and then way back to the left margin to read the next gives me a fit. I'm glad the code doesn't break in arbitrary places, but the narrative ought to fit in a screen.

Thank you.

Yeah, I've noticed the same thing. When a line of code extends past the edge of the screen it shoots ALL the text out there too. It does make things hard to read. I wonder if the powers that be can do anything about it?

Blush...I just found the "Print This!" icon on the article (top). Gives a much better format for printing and reading!

Now we're both learning. I never noticed that before either.

Thanks Grant, this is a great article. Slightly on, and slightly off topic: I'm trying to convince my bosses that this would be a good idea. This being DBPro. How much of the whole For Professionals system do you have to implement to make this happen? Can I just install the IDE, and get all the unit test stuff working, or do I need to install the server side as well?

Thanks,



Rick Todd

You get all the functionality I've talked about without any of the server components. The server adds in all the Team activities like Work Items, Team builds, shared documents, etc.. I actually haven't used it much, so I'm not too familiar with it.

You get the DBPro install done & you can build & deploy databases, unit testing, generate test data (maybe the next article), etc. BTW, you'll need to beat your Microsoft rep about the face & neck to get them to admit it, but you don't need the Team Suite in order to install & run DBPro. You'll see a substantial savings on an already very expensive tool if you take the time & trouble to give them a good thrashing (plus, it's fun).

You shouldn't need to install a Team Foundation Server but I believe you need to have one of the Team System products installed on your workstation. It might be worth pushing for a Team Foundation Server though; it's worth just to get rid of SourceSafe! However, if you've already switched to another source control system it might not be as big of a sell to you or your management.

[Edit]Grant beat me to the punch and notes that you can lay DBPro on a Non-Team System Visual Studio installation.

Tatsu,

As far as I'm aware, you will need Team System for Database Professionals Edition, but not the "Suite", which is the much more expensive package that includes all four Editions (Architect,Dev,Test,DB).

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

David

You're 100% correct.

I actually thought that was what I said.
