.NET Documentation Tool 8.4

The .NET Documentation Tool creates comprehensive technical software documentation for .NET Framework applications written in VB.NET or C#. Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Access databases associated with the application may also be documented if required. There is enhanced functionality for documenting ASP.NET web applications.

Reports are created in HTML [sample], Microsoft's HTML Help [sample] and text [sample] formats. Color coded, syntax highlighted copies of the .NET and SQL code are included with the reports. The compiled HTML Help reports include fully searchable source code, making the
.NET Documentation Tool an invaluable utility in understanding your (or someone
else's!) applications. Versions for ASP and Visual Basic 6.0 are also available.

Changes in version 8.4 of the .NET Documentation Tool are:
  • Multiple databases associated with the .NET project are now documented properly.

  • It is now possible to document a database with the same name that exists on more than one server.

  • The SQL Server 2005 system table sysdiagrams is now excluded from SQL Server database reports.

  • The following SQL Server 2005 system stored procedures are no longer documented: 'sp_alterdiagram', 'sp_creatediagram', 'sp_dropdiagram', 'sp_helpdiagramdefinition', 'sp_helpdiagrams', 'sp_renamediagram', 'sp_upgraddiagrams' and 'fn_diagramobjects'.

  • SQL Server 2005 table columns are now correctly extracted from certain databases.

  • Triggers are now detected in SQL Server 2005 databases that use Schemas.

  • Relationships are now detected in SQL Server 2005 databases using Schemas.

  • Relationships are now correctly detected if a previous database error was encountered.
