In SSMS, Tools, Options, Source Control...

has anyone got a recommendation for a source control product other than SourceSafe which performs well with SSMS?

Don't know about SSMS, but I'm a fan of SubVersion

Here's a thread you were in, so may not be relevant:

http://www.sqlteam.com/forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=63148

I'm not sure how much it would need to be able to integrate with SSMS to be useful. I mean, SubVersion doesn't integrate with Query Analyser but it works just fine. I just work on my local copy of the source code files and check in when I'm ready. I can freshen my code several times a day to keep the bits I haven;t changed bang up to date - which reduces the risk that I have worked on something concurrently with someone else - but on the odd occasions that happens its not a major bear to "resolve".

I do my CheckIn / CheckOut (Commit / Update in SVN-speak) from Windows Explorer - or even File : Open sometimes. Just rightclick a specific file, folder, or the root folder of a section - or the whole source code tree - and choose Commit or Update.

I travel with my laptop only once in a while - just hit UPDATE before I go and the laptop has the source code for everything on it. Work on what I want to, come back to the office and Commit - if I've been away for weeks then more likely that someone else has changed something and I have more stuff to Resolve, but as I said that's not a big issue.

You'll detect that I'm pretty keen on it! Hop on a plane Sam and I'll give you a demo ...

Maybe you'll be visiting DC sometime?

We use subversion here for Visual Studio and it works well. I suppose we could develop SPs in Visual Studio, but it seems unnatural to me. Does anyone here prefer Visual Studio over SSMS for stored procedure development?

I wanted to ask before giving subversion a try. I don't want to pioneer a new road because I didn't ask to look at a map of known highways.

Blimey, wouldn't have thought SVN'r's would consider migrating to SourceSafe - maybe I'm biased though

"I suppose we could develop SPs in Visual Studio"

The question I would ask is why you need it integrated? We don't have SVN integrated with anything we use (other than Windows Explorer) and don't really give it a second thought. We just edit our files with whatever tool we like, then commit stuff when we are ready from Windows Explorer - but a Batch File Shortcut on the Desktop would do just as well!

Well, I was curious about the "built in" support SSMS offers for source control in the Tools, Options, Source Control drop-down.

From the lack of response, it looks like nobody has an endorsement of SSMS / source control. I'll give it a try and report back if it looks interesting (or not) with subversion.

Nothing wrong with using Windows Explorer and SVN at all. Very cool.
