SQL Refactor is set to change the way you interact with SQL Server forever
"If this product were a woman I'd make sweet love to it, that's how addicted I am!"
CAMBRIDGE, U.K., October 31, 2006 - Red Gate Software has released SQL Refactor, a $295 software add-in to SQL Server Management Studio that provides database refactoring for the first time in SQL Server.
SQL Refactor allows you to improve the design of your databases without altering its functionality. From formatting SQL, summarizing scripts to splitting tables, SQL Refactor takes an instant to perform tasks that are either impossible or take hours of tedious work. SQL Server professionals will use SQL Refactor every day.
"I think this is an indispensable tool," says Andrew J Kelly, an MVP and director of SQL training company, Solid Quality Learning.
SQL Server developer Mladen Prajdic is one of many enthusiastic SQL Refactor bloggers: "If this product were a woman I'd make sweet love to it, that's how addicted I am!"
Like all Red Gate Software products, SQL Refactor is a simple and immediately usable tool that solves common problems faced by Microsoft developers and DBAs. The fact that SQL Refactor sits on the toolbar of Management Studio means it is extremely convenient and easy to use, whether you're working with 2000 or 2005.
"We did a lot of research into exactly which database refactorings would be 'Must Have' for database professionals on a daily basis," says Andras Belokosztolszki, the architect of SQL Refactor. "We were surprised by the answers we got back. It turns out that being able to reformat SQL code to a preset standard is fantastically popular. That essential feedback meant that we built another two dozen customizable formatting options into the application."
SQL Refactor includes the following major refactorings:
- Extensively customizable SQL layout settings
- Automatic, intelligent object renaming with all dependent references
- Instant summarization of long and complex scripts or queries
- Encapsulation of script portions as separate stored procedures
- One-click uppercasing of keywords
- The ability to split a table into two tables and maintain full referential integrity
A fully functional 14-day free download of SQL Refactor is now available.
