Rollback scripts

Posted on 2011-04-28
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Our team is working on a new java application with sql 2008 as the backend and the requirements we have are not fixed and they are bound to change. So a need might arise where we have to go back to earlier version of database. Can any one please provide samples of rollback scripts?

    Then consider getting a tool to manage changes, such as Embarcadero ER/Studio and/or Change Manager, or Redgate tools. These tools can help you manage versions of your models in both ERDs and SQL files.
