At VS Connections, Microsoft announced the transition from “Oslo” to SQL Server Modeling. “At PDC, we’ll release a new CTP using this name, SQL Server Modeling CTP, that’ll begin to demonstrate how developers’ll use these technologies in concert with things like T-SQL, ADO.NET, ASP.NET and other parts of .NET Framework to build database applications. Components of SQL Server Modeling CTP: • “M” is a highly productive, developer friendly, textual language for defining schemas, queries, values, functions and DSLs for SQL Server databases • “Quadrant” is a customizable tool for interacting with large datasets stored in SQL Server databases • “Repository” is a SQL Server role for the the secure sharing of models between applications and systems. At PDC, we’ll unify the “Oslo” Developer Center and Data Developer Center. You’ll be able download new SQL Server Modeling CTP here on first day of PDC,” Microsoft.
