Devart Delivers dbForge Schema Compare for SQL Server 2.00 Beta to Database Professionals

Schema Compare for SQL Server 2.00 will compare schema snapshots, database backups, and database changes in version control systems to accelerate the work of advanced database developers.

December 15, 2009

Devart today announced the public availability of Schema Compare for SQL Server 2.00 beta, which final release is scheduled for this December. Schema Compare for SQL Server 2.00 beta delivers new capabilities to help customers more effectively compare databases and more quickly migrate schema changes across different SQL Server versions.

Featuring new functionality, the tool is better equipped to span a full spectrum of database comparison and synchronization tasks and allows completing them at a professional level.

The highlights of Schema Compare for SQL Server 2.00 beta include:

  • Support of native SQL Server backups

    The users can use native SQL Server backups as a metadata source and compare them. It adds a new way to compare and update database structures without manual work.

  • Database comparison and synchronization via command line

    This is especially useful for the users, who do repeated schema comparison and synchronization. It is enough to set a comparison once and the tool will prepare a file with required command line arguments - Source and Target connection strings, comparison options and settings. The users can schedule the launch time for the processes specified in the file and escape any waiting.

  • Tracking database changes using version control systems

    This prevents several developers from changing database objects simultaneously. Now it is easy to revert to earlier revisions and quickly identify who and when changed the objects. Comparison takes less time as schema snapshots are compared. dbForge Schema Compare uses two most popular version control systems — SVN and TFS.

  • Generating comparison and synchronization reports

    Now publishing differences between databases is automated and offered as clear and professionally looking reports.
