Release Notes

I apologize to anyone who downloaded 1.1.9, the stored procedure generator would not report missing procedures due to a misplaced else statement (oops).

Since I had to do a new relase to fix that, I added the ability to store the last connection strings used so hopefully this feature makes it worth the trouble for having to reinstall. I think it is best to uninstall and reinstall the new version if updating, as this is not a patch release.

Updates for version 1.2.0: Fixed the Stored Procedure Comparison

I thoroughly tested the new stored procedure comparison module for any changes in the text, however I had an else in the wrong place if the stored procedure was not found. My QA department (me also) only comes in on the weekends.

Also, since I had to do a new update, I added an option to store the source and target connection strings any time you compare. If you do not like this feature just uncheck the box and it will not store any settings.
I no the proper way to do it would be to allow saving sets of connection strings, but I only have so much time.

Updates for version 1.1.9: The original version of DB Compare was not 100% accurate for comparing stored procedures.

This version executes the procedure sp_helptext for each source and target procedure and if the text is different a comparison difference will be reported.

The text comparison is very sensitive so any comments or localizations in your procedures will report a difference that may not be a true schema difference. Any parameter or select field differences will accurately be reported now, so that is a trade off I felt is worth it.

This version also has a link to the new Data Juggler web site and a link to a program I have written called NFlate, which is a better version of Windows Explorer, as it allows you to customize the font and font size to assist people with poor vision like myself.

You can watch a movie about NFlate on YouTube at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7ofXupwNHo

DB Compare is built using the same code generation engine as RAD Studio Code Generation Toolkit, http://radstudio.codeplex.com
