SQL Compare 6 from Red Gate adds support for SQL script files
First major step in simplifying database source control
CAMBRIDGE, U.K., June 21, 2007 – Red Gate Software has taken a major step in simplifying database source control with today's release of SQL Compare 6, which enables users to compare and synchronize to and from object-level SQL scripts.
SQL Compare is an essential tool used by more than 150,000 DBAs, developers and testers worlwide to save time and money when comparing and synchronizing SQL Server database schemas. The latest version tackles a problem faced by nearly every professional who develops and manages databases.
"If you develop on a live database, you can now use SQL Compare 6 to update a set of SQL script files that represent the database schema," says Andras Belokosztolszki, the architect behind the last three versions of SQL Compare. "This opens the door to placing source control at the heart of the development process, providing a way to control and track database design changes in a detailed and meticulous manner."
Dre Alicea, Manager of Database Systems for David's Bridal, welcomes the unique new capabilities of the software:
"The ability to sync to/from scripts is functionality that will set SQL Compare apart from its competitors...extremely helpful for those who script objects for source control."
More polished, intuitive and flexible
Red Gate also responded to customer requests by implementing a wide range of user interface enhancements in SQL Compare 6. New developments include improved searching in comparison results and detailed-differences panels, and better project selection dialogs.
"I've been using SQL Compare since version 3," says Ryan Gribble, a software configuration engineer. "The user interface [in version 6] is even more polished, generally more intuitive, and ultimately more flexible and configurable than previous versions...that is a great thing."
Free 14-day trial
A fully functional version of SQL Compare 6 is available as a free 14-day trial and for direct purchase starting at $295 from www.red-gate.com.
