I love the ability to use command-line functionality to specify the comparison of a single object or a set of objects. It's a quick way to determine if an object is the same between my development and QA environments.Jon Moorman, Senior Database Architect, Fair Isaac Corp.
As we started a new development adventure moving our work order system from Cold Fusion to ASP.NET we were in need of a database re-write. As I started the process and got a new developer on board, it was quickly realized that keeping up with database schema changes was difficult.
I checked out Red Gate's SQL Comparison SDK after I remembered hearing about it in one of my newsgroup's newsletters. It worked great.
Now my other developer just gets the latest file version automatically, double-clicks on the file in Visual Studio and is able to quickly launch the Compare tools and get his local copy of the SQL database the same as mine. It has been an absolute time-saver for us. We can concentrate on development and not wasting time making sure the database schema is the same. Thanks for a Wonder Product!Robert L. Taylor, Senior Web/Systems Developer, DataStarUSA, Inc.
Currently we keep a copy of each and every 'build' of our product stored on a backup SQL box that we use to do a compare against when we release each 'new' build. Our plan is to create a .NET app to generate snapshots of each build so we can do this 'sanity check', not only prior to releasing a new build, but actually verify that client databases are properly synched at all times (by sending them a 'client' version of this app). We don't 'own' the client databases so they sometimes change without our knowledge. The SDK will help guarantee that our scripts will run successfully.Seth Rothman, Product Manager for a CRM product used by 45 of the world's largest financial institutions
