Just found a little something new in SSIS 2008, The Integration Services Connections Project Wizard. This thing starts up when you first begin a new SSIS project. The whole point is to walk you though your initial connection configurations. Once the connections are set up, it even asks you if each is a source, destination, or both and then it creates your first Data Flow task complete with the correct sources and destinations. This probably isn't all that useful to someone that has spent any measurable amount of time with SSIS, but for new comers I think its great. I remember the first time I opened SSIS, it took me a minute to figure out how to get a connection , a source, and a destination all set up. Granted I tend not to read documentation, so I am probably a special case.
In any event, if this pops up in your face the next time you start a project. Have a look, it’s a neat little addition.
