If we are VB.Net and MSSQLServer developers why purchase CCS instead of Visual Studio ?

Have somebody a comparison about Visual Studio 2008 vs CCS 4?

the tools are somewhat diferent. VS is primarily an IDE to help you write code while CCS is primarily a code generator.

AFAIK, VS does not generate any code for you other than empty stubs for functions, etc. With CCS you define your database and then it creates all of the CRUD (create, read, update and delete) stuff. After it builds your code you can then use the CCS IDE and built-in functionality to finish your application.

And there may be the possibility of using both CCS and VS. I have been able to do a limited amount of cross-tool work with CCS and Dreamweaver.

We use ASP so I cannot comment on how well CCS does for .NET; you need to ask other .NET users for that.

Right. VS is an IDE and CCS is a RAD. They have different purposes.

VS is reacher in controls and behavior. They can't be compared side by side: a full installation of CS take 3GB+ for working in visual basic, C# and visual c++ among other MS languages while CCS takes 40MB+ for C#,, PHP, Java, Perl, ColdFusion.... They can't be compared.

As far as I know, Visual web developer (which came with VS) has the components to generate forms and grids from database like CCS does.
