    SQL Server Database Publishing Wizard Community Technology Preview 1

    I tested it and here are my first observations:

    • It's a command line tool.
    • To script the AdventureWorksDW database:
      1. I opened a command promt and change the directory to C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Tools\Publishing
      2. I typed the following: sqlpubwiz script -d AdventureWorksDW C:\AdventureWorksDW.sql
      3. Unfortunatelly it failed due to an unsupported data type (the XML data type) for a table:
      4. The limitation was known: DPW Support Matrix
      5. I tried with Northwind database typing: sqlpubwiz script -d Northwind C:\Northwind.sql and this time it worked just fine:
    • Conclusion: pretty good tool at this stage (CTP1) but you should know that it has its limitation such as a limited set of objects supported and several  unsupported data types (XML, Varbinary(MAX), VarChar(MAX), NVarChar(MAX) etc.)
    • In November the CTP2 should be lauched with a GUI version of the tool and enhanced object and data types support.

    Thanks for downloading and trying out our first CTP!  We released the second CTP earlier this month.  It now has a GUI and supports most object and data types.

    Check it out at http://www.codeplex.com/sqlhost and let us know if you have any feedback.

    Thanks,
