  1. Add SQL Server integration

    Add SQL Server integration so that it's easier to build end to end mobile and web apps that contain Web API Core and Entity Framework Core.

    • Add native SQLServer support or DB server explorer feature.

      It would be better to add SqlServer support VS or DB explorer which can detect the available DBs to connect/connected. Currently, its not easy or not possible to connect to a Docker ( sqlserver container instances ) .

      • Allow Development of SSRS Reports (including the FetchXML Extension for Dynamics 365)

        Right now, the product is not useful for clients who are using Dynamics 365 as the tools needed to develop custom reports are not present. Back to using Parallels (and this is the ONLY thing I need that for anymore!)
