Database Visualization Tools

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 

Hello MSDN Hive Mind,

This is a newb question, but help would gratefully appreciated.

What tools are available for 2005 SQL Server Management Studio that allows developers to view the dependencies within a database?

I am taking over a project with no documentation and am seeking a way to view the FK within the database without having to go through every single table in the tree.

Database structure visualization

  

Hi All,

Please be patient with me, as I am new to the forums!

I am currently developing an application that creates a database such as the following:

DatabaseRoot

  Model1

      Point1

      Point2

      Line1

      Line 2

  Model2

    Point1

    Line1

  Results1

  Results2

I would like to display this data in a treeview so that I can expand / collapse each level of the database at a group level (Models / Results at the first level, Points / Lines etc at the next sub-level).

My database objects all derive from a base object class, and each database object stores it's type (from an enum).

What is the best way to approach this, i.e. nested collectionviewstructures etc? Or should I consider re-coding the database structure itself to make it lend itself to WPF?

Cheers

Chris


Unspecified error (MS Visual Database Tools) in SSMSEE

  
I get an unspecified error message when I try to manage tables in a SQL Server 2008 express edition using SSMSEE 2005.  I am connected to a 2008 instance.  I found a post in this forum with exactly the same Title, but it does not solve my problem.

Architecture Tools in VSTS 2010

  
Designing new functionality on existing applications can be daunting. There are always differences between the original design and the current implementation.

The new Architecture tools within Visual Studio Team System 2010 help you understand the application you have, design new functionality you need, and validate that your design and your implementation do not deviate.

Multiple database support with Entity Framework

  
One of the features introduced in Entity Framework is being database independent. Which mean each database provider can support Entity Framework by implementing its provider.

This feature allows you build applications independent from the underplaying database provider. In this post I'm going to show how to build an application that support multiple databases using same conceptual model made by Entity Framework.

Export Visio Database Table Names to Excel

  
If you use the Enterprise Architect edition of Microsoft Visio for data modeling regularly, then there is a good chance that at some point you've wanted to export just the table names into Excel. You might want to do this to map logical ERD entities to physical data model tables, track project status by entity, or track overlap between database versions.

SQL Server Database Transaction

  
A transaction is a group of SQL commands executed together as a single component of work to be accomplished. If all of these commands succeed, then a transaction is committed - the changes to the data are made final. If any of the commands within a transaction fail, then the entire transaction is cancelled, or in SQL Server terms, the transaction will be rolled back.

Transactions are one of the things that keep your data safe, but they're not necessarily easy to understand. Here's some help:
