Project Model
The center of gravity
The database project represents the “truth” with
regards to schema versioning
Optionally database project can be placed under
source control
.SQL script files is the canonical format used
Changes are tracked at the “object level”
For example indexes, constraints, triggers are tracked
independent of the base table definition, in order have
the highest granularity of change tracking

Continuing the Journey…
In part 1 we established:
A Database Project representing our schema
Placed it under version control
Create a sandbox environment using Build & Deploy
Verified if the sandbox matches the project and the
original database, using Schema Compare
Now we are ready to start making changes!
First we are going to create test data
Which will be used by the test bed we are creating
So we can validate our changes made using
Schema Refactoring
12
Data Generation
Design Time
Setting up Data Generation implies defining:
Which generator to use
Which distribution to attach to the generator
Changing setting on the generator & distribution
The numbers of rows to generate
Optionally defining the rowcount ratios between tables
By default:
Each column is bound to the generator matching the
column data type
FK columns are mapped to the Foreign Key generator
Uniqueness is inferred from PK, UC constraints and indexes
Using the Uniform distribution when not unique
13
Data Generation
Design Time
Value generators
Simple generators for each data type
Strings: ASCII and Unicode ((var)char, n(var)char, (n)text)
Numbers: tinyint, smallint, int, bigint, real, float, decimal,
numeric, money
Binary ((var)binary, image)
Date and Time
UniqueIdentifier (GUID)
Bit
Complex generators
Foreign Key, Regular Expression, Data Bound
Distributions
Uniform, Normal, Inverse Normal, Exponential, Inverse
Exponential
Can import column distributions from production database (*)

Data Generation
Design Time
Understand domain constraints
Check constraints (min/max)
Table cardinality
Enforce table ratios
Column value distribution
16
Data Generation
Executing a Data Generation Definition
Validation of
Security requirements
Fails when security requirements are not met!
Target schema against DGEN definitions
Fails the generation when bindings do not match!
Optionally purge tables
Required to guarantee repeatable data generation
Spin up parallel streams of INSERT statements
Based on relation ships between tables
Number of connections used is currently gated by the
schema relationships.
Configurable Error Thresholds

Database Unit Testing
Design Time
Automatically generate unit tests stubs for:
Stored Procedures, Functions (*), Triggers (*)
Test Validation (assertions)
T-SQL (server based) Assertions
RAISERROR command
Client Side Assertions
None Empty ResultSet
Row Count
Execution Time, …
Pre & Post Test Scripts
(*) Not implemented in the current CTP
20
Database Unit Testing
Test Execution
Automatic Deployment Integration
Automatically deploy database project prior to running
tests (*)
Data Generation Integration
Automatically generate data based on generation plan
prior to running tests
Execution & Validation connections
Validation connection can be higher privileged account
(*) Not implemented in the current CTP
21
Database Unit Testing
Customization & Extensibility
Database Unit Test designer generates C# or
VB.NET code
Can customize generated code for:
Custom test validation logic
Parameterized test support
Managing transactions
Additional test setup and teardown of tests

Database Schema Refactoring
What is refactoring?
“A database refactoring is a small change to your
database schema which improves its design
without changing its semantics.”
Agile Database Development, Scott Ambler
For example:
Rename a Schema Object Name for
consistency, understandability, maintainability…
Objective: Rename ALL schema object references;
direct and indirect inside all:
Tables, views, stored procedures, user defined functions, …
24
Database Schema Refactoring
Rename Refactoring…
Rename any SQL 2000 & SQL 2005 schema
object
Updates all references in…
Schema Objects
Data Generation Plans
Scripts
Database Unit Tests
Preview changes prior to commit
Global undo to reverse all changes
25
Database Schema Refactoring
Refactoring Safety Net
Unit Testing
Develop a battery of tests to run after a refactoring to
ensure database still functions as expected
Version Control
Store all previous versions so you can always go back
to a prior baseline in source control
Schema Compare
Analyze the exact differences between the project and
live database to understand the impact of the update
