Updating Data-Tier Application project after schema change has been made in SSMS

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :
I have successfully created a Data-Tier Application project within visual studio. How do I update these scripts to reflect the changes made by a DBA in SSMS?  Also, on another project we use Entity Framework which drops and recreates the database from within the application. I would also like to import these changes into the Data-Tier Application project.
I can figure out how to import the database into the project the very first time. But after a change has been made using another tool, how do I synchronize the project in visual studio?
When I create a schema comparison that points from database -> project, it correctly analyzes the schema changes. Am I missing how to update the project with these changes?
Thanks, I really would like a solution to this so I can use Data-Tier Applications instead of a third party tool.

Data Validation in a 3 tier application

Say you have a form  designed in  Silverlight(Front end)-Asp.NEt(business layer)-SQl(bakcend)Should data validation occur on all 3 layers or just the presentation layer or  a combination of the front end with the other 2  e.g. validating an email address? I'm trying to undestand as to why if data has been validated on the presentation  why further data validation would be necessary  especially if there would be large amounts of data being validated and this could potentially slow down database transactions? 

Change Default Sort for Dynamic Data Web Application




I just created a dynamic data web application and setup a simple .EDMX file. Next, I created meta-data / partial classes to ensure that my integer identifiers wouldn't show up:

// ...


public object TableId { get; set; }

 // ...

I wanted to now set the up the list pages so they sort using a different attribute ("Name" in this case). Anyone know if this is possible / how to do it?






MVC architecture in ASP.Net using C# and Microsoft Data Access Application block

The Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern separates the modeling of the domain, the presentation, and the actions based on user input into three separate classes [Burbeck92]:

Model. The model manages the behavior and data of the application domain, responds to requests for information about its state (usually from the view), and responds to instructions to change state (usually from the controller).

View. The view manages the display of information.

Controller. The controller interprets the mouse and keyboard inputs from the user, informing the model and/or the view to change as appropriate.

Logic behind N -Tier Application Development

In the arena of application development, developers all over the world use various programming languages, technical processes, and technical tools. While using number of technical & non technical elements the processes or methods become complex, for simplification of the application development process, developers use various techniques such as dividing the application architecture into layers or parts. In the professional & technical language this separation or division process is called N-Tier Application Development process, where "N" stands for number and "tire" stands for layers or parts.

How to create 3 tier application using LINQ

As you know that in 3 tier architecture there are three layers

User interface layer. (Is our Form in Windows application and .aspx page in Web application)
Data Access layer. (Which provides interface between Business logic layer and Database)
Business Logic layer.(Which stores your application logic)

Creating a Smartphone Application and Using Data from SQL Mobile

In this exercise, you will use Visual Studio 2005 to create a Smartphone application. You will associate commands with a mobile device's soft keys, and you will add the ability to scroll through the list of available products (a list of images). You will create a data source for an existing SQL Mobile database, and then test the application in the Windows Mobile 5.0 emulator.

In the following procedure, you will create a new Windows Mobile 5.0 project in Visual Studio.

Microsoft Application Block for Data Access in .NET


Hi all,

I was rummaging the internet learning aspx and came across the concept of: Microsoft Application Block for Data Access in .NET

It seems great of course. The articles are all early 2003-5 such as


So the question is - is this tech still relevant and should I be using it?



VS 2008 Web Application Project


Hi, I am working on a VS time clock project to be used for student's to clock in and out. When the student clocks in the time/date is saved to a temp table. Upon login out to the login screen for the next user to use I need to save the clocked in time to a permanate table. It is an update from the temp table to the permanate table. However, when the page redirects to the login page, I recieve the dbnull to date is invalid error. Now understand, when the page is redirecting to the login page for the next user, the only way I could figure out to get the browser to forget the sessionstate, was to use a delete statement that removes the data from the perm table, but before it erases it, I need to save it to the permanate database table.


Anyone have a solution they can send my way??


Thanks :)

Data Points: The Enterprise Library Data Access Application Block, Part 3


E nterprise applications can have a wide variety of data update requirements. Sometimes you need to save multiple rows of changes at once within a single transaction. Other times, the user must be allowed to enter multiple rows of data, send them to the database in a batch; and if a row or two fails, only the rows that succeeded should be committed and remain committed.

A solid data access later (DAL) can benefit an application by hiding redundant tasks, helping handle exceptions more gracefully, helping clean up resources more efficiently, and providing a layer of abstraction from the database.
