What VisualStudio.NET Edition do I Need ?

P: n/a
Hi All,

We want to develope Windows and Web .NET application on Oracle 9i on AIX.
Also we will use Crystal Report for reporting.
I have question about the what Visual Studio.NET edition do we need to
purchase.

1) For our requirement above (.NET Data Provider for Oracle and Crystal
Report), is Profesional Edition enough ?
Or should I go to Enterprise Developer ?

2) When do I realy need VStudio.Net Enterprise Developer edition ?

3) For Crystal Report, if We want to integrate the report into the
application, do we have to still purchase Crystal Report separately ?
Or the Crystal Report that comes with Profesional Edition also include
the license ?

Thank you for your help,
Krist

This page details the difference between the versions:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/ho.../choosing.aspx

Overall, the Pro version is fine for most development. All include the basic
Crystal implementation, but you will likely want to purchase a full fledged
version for your applications (unless the 5 user limit, amongst other
limitations, works for you). The Pro version also has the OracleClient
namespace, although I am more fond of ODP.NET, which is freely downloadable
from http://otn.oracle.com (registration required).

The ED version is useful for creating tests in Application Center Test. It
also comes with SQL Server 2000 Developer, but you are unlikely to use that
if you are an Oracle shop. SourceSafe, however, is a useful addition, if you
do not use another form of SourceControl. ED also contains the ability to
use Enterprise Templates for automatic standards control.

You only need EA if you are using the Visio tools for modeling, need to
create your own Enterprise Templates or you desire to work with BizTalk
sserver without buying a separate product.
