My co-worker and fellow DBA, Leigh Freijo has a blog entry about a Powershell script he created to re-integrate QA/Development database changes using Red Gate SQL Backup and Red Gate SQL Compare snapshot files. The script providers a wrapper around Red Gate's command line tools. This is a good demonstration of the strength of any scripting language -- The ability to glue together existing tools to make another tool. Nice work Leigh!
