Prepare script for specific objects


Sometimes, we need to script some particular objects in a database. What we know is we do not know what is the dependency between them.

Do Some Basics

Give a quick look at the following links:

Use the Code

The following snippet is used to generate scripts based on dependency and moreover, it just scripts the mentioned objects only, not all the dependent objects.

Private Sub ScriptObjects(ByVal objval() As String)
        Dim Dw As New DependencyWalker
        Dim db As Database = sm.Database
        Dim ObjTbl As DataTable = db.EnumObjects()
        Dim Selectedurn As New UrnCollection
        Dim DepWalk As DependencyWalker
        Dim DepTree As DependencyTree
        Dim DepColl As DependencyCollection
        Dim Drows() As DataRow
        For Each objName As String In objval
            If objName.Length = 0 Then Continue For
            Drows = ObjTbl.Select("Name ='" + objName + "'")
            If Drows.Length > 0 Then
                Selectedurn.Add(New Urn(Drows(0)("Urn").ToString))
            End If
        DepWalk = New DependencyWalker(db.Parent)
        DepTree = DepWalk.DiscoverDependencies(Selectedurn, True)
        DepColl = DepWalk.WalkDependencies(DepTree)
        Dim sb As New StringBuilder
        Dim scriptwriter As New Scripter
        scriptwriter.Server = sm.Database.Parent
        For Each depnd As DependencyCollectionNode In DepColl
            Dim obName As String = depnd.Urn.GetAttribute("Name")
            If objval.Contains(obName.ToUpper) Then
                'sm.ScriptObject(sb, Selectedurn, scriptwriter)
            End If
        Using Sr As New StreamWriter(String.Format("{0}\GeneratedScript.sql", sm.GetBaseDirectory()))
        End Using
    End Sub

The following bit of code makes me happy to script the specified objects only:
