T-SQL Static Analysis 2005 & 2008 — Analysis and Review

In October 2007 I wrote a review on the T-SQL Static Analysis feature provided in the Visual Studio Team Edition for Database Professionals Power Tools. In February this year Microsoft released Version 2 of the Power Tools, Visual Studio® Team System 2008 Database Edition Power Tools (available here).

For Static Analysis, Version 2 provides very little improvement over Version 1. I have updated my original review to include the changes provided with Version 2. I have also removed a star from both Rating and Potential as this product still suffers from three major problems:

  1. Inconsistent Error Reporting
  2. Minimal Documentation
  3. Too Few Rules

I was hoping to put together a fresh review with lots to report on, however Version 2 has not delivered… Let’s hope that V3 is better and not too far off
