Radio TFS covering the VSTSDB 2008 GDR


The hosts of Radio TFS, Martin Woodward, Mickey Gousset and Paul Hacker interviewed me on the what is new and changed in the Visual Studio Team System 2008 Database Edition GDR CTP16 release. Since there are so many new things in the GDR we ran out of time, sorry. Good reason do a part 2 soon.

    It was nice to hear your voice!

    I had a lot of issues over the time it would take to validate my SQL2008 database schema in CTP15, CTP16 is in fact already a big improvement in usability for this issue.

    It still takes quite a bit of time, but it is getting better!

    If i understand correctly, CTP16, doesn’t "fully" supports SQL2008 in terms of validation?

    It is reporting me a lot of warnings like "The reference to the column [name] could not be resolved."

    The pattern is common in our stored procedures:

    select col1 as display, col2, col3 from table1

    union

    select col1 as display,1,” from table2

    order by col1

    Is there a something wrong with this way of doing this?

    Let me know;

    Thanks again for the great work and the great interview!
