Database Edition Now Does DB2!

Tech Ed 2008 included some major announcements for database development folks. One of the biggees was this - and announcement that Database Edition is going to support DB2 development!

Gert and the team have been working hard to expand the underlying architecture and functionality of Database Edition (making it extrememly difficult for this one author I know in Farmville to keep up... I'm not complaining!). Rearchitecting Data Dude to utilize a provider-based model was no small task, but the team at Microsoft has been able to pull it off - way to go team!

These changes affect a lot of how Database Edition currently works. We were given a preview at the MVP Summit in April. The work is impressive, but the ability and agility provided by the new architecture is even more so.

You will see a ton of changes with the release of Visual Studio Team System 2008 Database Edition GDR. You can currently download the June CTP here.
