Interesting Feature


#1

As I was sitting here today installing the new beta of TOAD and the new OnTime,
I thought to myself, OnTime integrated nicely with Visual Studio. I can look at
my features and defects while working in Visual Studio and don’t need to
go to a separate window. This might be an interesting venue for TOAD. I love
TOAD over the in-house Visual Studio database stuff. I’d love to have TOAD
integrated into Visual Studio so it could just be a tab in Visual Studio and I
could use it from within there (to make queries and maybe some other
integration) . I haven’t given a lot of thought to the integration it
could do yet, but it was interesting enough for me to send an email. I realize
this is way beyond the scope of this beta but I thought I would bring it up
maybe for discussion.

I second the request from Code Monkey Haines…there are a lot of third
party tools that I use and love…its nice to have tabs in VS that you can
refer back to….i use TOAD more than any other database management software
and would sell my first born to have it in VS J

Charles interesting comment and could be quite useful. Do you have simple
pictures of what you doing here?

By the way what version of Visual Studio are you using… I am exploring VS
2010 for Schema compare work…

I don’t have a picture right now but I could put some together.

I’m thinking of Visual Studio 2010. They have incorporated
“DataDude” into all version of Visual Studio. So now I can harness
the power of their database models and deployment options. However I would love
to use TOAD for the SQL development, querying and data comparisons (and some
other things). But it would be awesome to have TOAD integrated with the DataDude
stuff to be able to view the new database models and have it as a tab in Visual
Studio.

I just listened to the Dot NET Rocks podcast this morning which features some
TOAD guys from the Oracle side of things and their discussions on what they did
with Oracle integration in 2010 was kind of exciting. I would love to have the
querying aspects of TOAD integrated with the DataDude aspects of 2010. I need to
play with the DataDude to really figure out the type of integration. I’ll
report back once I have a better understand of what I’d really like. I was
really kind of dreaming when first sent the email but don’t have a real
clear view of what I want yet.
