I use better version control (Git & Mercurial) for my open source projects than I do for my work related ones. Tis a sad thought...

Joe - We use dedicated development on SQL Source Control.

Seemed to make most sense at the time!

Cheers

Joe - definitely go with Dedicated dev environments for RedGate's SQL Source Control. They've got quite a few resources on their website that explain the differences (videos, whitepapers, etc), but the dedicated environments are easier to maintain.

Yeah that's what I am thinking.

I'll check out the whitepapers.

I've switched over to using SSDT for most of my DB Development.

Its been a really good (but slightly painful) change over.

Has anyone else done this?

In addition to developers' use of version control products in studios apps, we have a database trigger which logs all DDL changes. So every DDL change is logged into a table. In addition to the EventData() data we also log the Change ID initiating the change and any comments. So in production I know exactly when and why objects were changed.

We are still non-distributed, and use SourceGear Vault, happy enough. Anyone got compelling reasons to go distributed?

The only time I have not checked any code in recently is when a released version needs patching, an updated version is in progress, and we have not properly forked at release for whatever reason. This would rarely tend to happen to be fair.


From my standpoint the big reason is if you work disconnected at times with multiple people. Connectivity sometimes is an issue and distributed allows that to work better in my limited experience.

However if that's not an issue, not sure it matters. There is this: http://blogs.atlassian.com/2012/02/version-control-centralized-dvcs/

For users of the RedGate solution do you recommend Shared Database Development or Dedicated?

I am leaning towards Dedicated, my coworker is leaning towards Shared.


dedicated.

Use a separate database for shared, and you and link that to the same project in VCS. That way you can work without disturbing others. If you break something, you don't break anyone else.

However when you commit in your dedicated database, do a Get Latest in the shared one to "integrate your changes" and test there. I assume you'll test in your dedicated before you commit changes.
