Thanks for the well-written article. I haven't used BIML for a few years and it seems that it has evolved quite a bit since then.

I notice that you do not mention support for VS2015 (and by extension SQL Server 2016). Was that a deliberate omission?

The last time I looked at BIML, it did not support the project deployment model, with project-scoped connections and parameters. Is that still the case? This is a deal-breaker for me, if it's still true.

If the answer to your question can be found with a brief Google search, please perform the search yourself, rather than expecting one of the SSC members to do it for you.

Please surround any code or links you post with the appropriate IFCode formatting tags. It helps readability a lot.

I'm tinkering around right now with BIML via BIML Express, in VS 2015 Community Edition & SQL Server 2016 Express installed locally (named instance). Works fine enough for me!

From what I understand, BIDS Helper 1.7's BIML gets disabled for VS2015. That's OK, the other bits besides BIML still work. So, jump thru Variegence's hoops, get key, and download and install BIML Express. Despite find-and-replace (only find works) not working currently in BIML Express, not fighting with the normal XML editor's Intellisense quirks w.r.t. BIML is quite nice.
