You can use bcp.exe or DTS to export data to a file and load it again, or if
you prefer INSERT statements then see here:

If you want everything (objects and data), then BACKUP and RESTORE is often
the easiest way.

In Enterprise Manager, find the database, right-click, select All Tasks,
and in that submenu you find scripting options.

There is a Java program called Super*SQL which will unload any tables
you have into an ASCII file that you can then run or load into a
different database. For more information visit www.sqlmagic.com.

Hi, you could also look at this article which describes a Java utility
to dump both data and schema information to an SQL file.

http://isocra.com/articles/article.php?id=java_db_dump

We wrote it because we needed to synchronize two remote SQLServer
databases as well as a MySQL development database.

In fact it's pretty easy to integrate it into a JSP to give the same
sort of dumping functionality as phpMyAdmin but for SQLServer.
