Schema Compare SDK requires Microsoft .NET framework 4.0.
Intuitive object model - a well thought out object model designed with the developers in mind, makes the integration of the SQL Server database schema comparison and synchronization functionality into your own .NET application easy and straight forward.
Redesigned to be faster, more reliable, and with a smaller "footprint" - we redesigned the SQL Server database schema comparison engine to be faster and more efficient; you will be impressed by what Schema Compare SDK can do with minimum amount of computing and storage resources.
Rigorously tested - before releasing version 4 of the Schema Compare SDK for SQL Server, we put it through the paces in our own test lab - hundreds of scenarios were simulated and literally thousands of tests were run.
Fast and accurate dependency algorithm - one of the key components of the SQL Server database Schema Compare SDK is the new dependency graph and our proprietary dependency algorithm; a great amount of experience and thinking has been materialized in the way version 4 handles dependencies.
Improved error handling and logging - SQL Server database Schema Compare SDK provides off the box default behavior on any error event, however you as a developer have access to detailed error information, error handling and logging.
Cross-version support - you can compare any supported version of SQL Server databases; the database schema comparison engine will compare the objects that are relevant for both sides. The change script is version specific – when pushing changed from a SQL Server 2012 database to a SQL Server 2005 database for example, the change script is SQL Server 2005 compliant and vice versa.
No dependencies on external libraries (barring .NET Framework) - while we are not condemning the practice of building applications that depend on external libraries (after all, our SQL Server database Schema Compare SDK is one such library that we want you to include in your applications) we believe that eliminating external dependencies gives our database Schema Compare SDK two main advantages: it makes it easier for you to install and run, and; it eliminates the “it's this other parties piece that is not working correctly” excuse.
Full control over the comparison and synchronization - more than 100 comparison options give you total control over the SQL Server database schema comparison and synchronization.
Many new, redesigned and improved features - thanks to many specific suggestions and comments from our user community, version 4 of our SQL Server database Schema Compare SDK includes many new and improved features that will make your implementation easier. You will find the new scripting and execution options, for example, quite helpful.
