Database projects in Visual Studio 2012?

Feb 9, 2012 at 2:42 PM

What about database projects in Visual Studio 2012?  Will the functionallity be the same as in Visual Studio 2010? I have heard a rumor that says that the database project template will be removed from Visual Studio 2012?

Hi and welcome to the group,

this is more than rumors, this is reality already present in the CTP bits of SQL Server. But (and here comes a really small but), the developer experience will be stay the same, the old project type will simply move over to SQL Server projects which is then present in VS2010 / VS(next) or SQL Server 2012. Without copying all the interesting stuff in here, I really encourage you to move over to the SSTD (SQL Server Development Tools) Blog http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ssdt/ or download the latest CTP to make yourself a picture of it.

The good news is that we wil upgrade the database guidance document to build a successor of the existing document and to adhere new best practices, so stay tunes. If you have any questions feel free to drop them here or to me (Jens.Suessm€yer@@@microsoft.c0m). I will point you to the needed information and help you where possible.

We will keep the community informed, right now it is just in the planning. We have been using the product for some months now and wanted to wait for the final version to ensure concistency with the guidance documentation. Look out for the ALM Rangers blog or on my blog here http://blogs.msdn.com/Jenss
