A place for my thoughts and experiences the Microsoft Data Platform

DTLoggedExec 1.1.2008.4 Released!

Today I've relased the latest version of my DTExec replacement tool, DTLoggedExec.

The main changes are the following:

  • Used a new strategy for version numbers. Now it will follow the following pattern Major.Minor.TargetSQLServerVersion.Revision
  • Added support for Auto Configurations
  • Fixed a bug that reported incorrect number of errors and warnings to Log Providers
  • Fixed a buf that prevented correct casting of values when using /Set and /Param options
  • Errors and Warnings are now counted more precisely.
  • Updated database and log import scripts to categorize logs by projects and sections. E.g.: Project: MyBIProject; Sections: Staging, Datawarehouse
  • Removed unused report stored procedures from database
  • Updated Samples: 12 samples are now available to show ALL DTLoggedExec features
  • From this version only SSIS 2008 will be supported

 It useful to say something more on a couple of specific points:

  • From this version only SSIS 2008 will be supported
    Yes, Integration Services 2005 are not supported anymore. The latest version capable of running SSIS 2005 Packages is the
  • Updated database and log import scripts to categorize logs by projects and sections
    When you import a log file, you can now assign it to a Project and to a Section of that project. In this way it's easier to gather statistical information for an entire project or a subsection of it. This also allows to store logged data of package belonging to different projects in the same database. For example: 

  • Updated Samples
    A complete set of samples that shows how to use all DTLoggedExec features are now shipped with the product. Enjoy!
  • Added support for Auto Configurations
    This point will have a post on its own, since it's quite important and is by far the biggest new feature introduced in this release. To explain it in a few words, I can just say that you don't need to waste time with complex DTS configuration files or options, since a package will configure itself automatically. You just need to write a single statement as a parameter for DTLoggedExec. This feature can simplify deployment *a lot* :)
I the next days I'll write the mentioned post on Auto-Configurations and i'll update the documentation available on theDTLoggedExec website:
