SQL Documenter - Beta available? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    In this thread: http://forums.microsoft.com/msdn/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=86687 Kirk Haselden talks about a tool named "SQL Documenter" scheduled for release around the time SQL Server 2005 is released.

    Does anyone know is there is a beta available of the tool and if a precise release date has been set for the tool?

  • Have you sent Kirk an email and asked him directly? I haven't seen anything on it. I've been using Jesse Hersch's Documentation tool (SqlSpec). For $20 I can't beat it. It doesn't dig down into SSIS or anything like that though; just for tables, procs, triggers, etc.

  • LiveDoco is yet another type of SQL Server documentation tools that does not actually generate doc/chm/pdf/etc files, but instead makes SQL Server's metadata explorable/searchable/exportable via the convenient web-browser based interface.

    It is ideal for exploring/commenting "ugly" or unfamiliar/new databases.

    Notes/comments are stored as MS_Description extended properties hence LiveDoco is compatible with most database documentation generators including all market leaders.

    Live demo available here: LiveDoco online demo

    See product web site for more information: www.livedoco.com

    Free 30days trial available and it is free for charitable organizations.
