ok, here's another I wrote that is absolutely free and open source:

http://www.codeplex.com/scriptdb

you can use it to script out all database objects from the cmd line. it's nice to automate generation of scripts for checkin to a source control system, for example.

Yes I agree with Rudy Panigas. This article is about free tools for a DBA. This does not mean tools with trial versions. Please refrain from adding responses with products that are not free.

Nice tool Jezemine. I have recently used it thanks

I would recommend SQLDeveloper by Oracle. It has the same feature set as Toad, but is completely free. It can attach to Oracle, MySQL, and SQL Server simultaneously. I personally use the Express Manager for most DBA tasks, but SQLDeveloper is FREE and covers multiple databases.

The other nice thing is that SQLDeveloper is cross platform. I have it in Windows, on MacOS X, and Linux. It also runs well in virtual machines.

I know there's a for fee version available, but there also used to be a free version of SQL Prompt from RedGate (not sure if there still is...). It's great for those extra large databases where you just don't want to have to type all of the names of those tables or SPs... This functionality exists within SSMS 2008 - but seems very quirky so far.



I know that the new version of SQL Prompt is paid.

Fortunately, when they had just begun with the project, they had free distribution of the software, which i have a copy of.

If anyone wants the copy, they can let me know either directly, or guide me to a place where i can upload it, for others to download.

Yahoo email? Not! GMail all the way. There's not even a comparison here.

Could you upload this tool on gmail or mediafire? I deleted my copy and now i can not find anywhere on net.

Thanks
