Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Data-tier applications (DAC) is a new project type in Visual Studio that allows a developer to package Database objects, schemas, deployment requirements, etc. into a single package (DACPAC) – which we refer to as a “single unit of deployment”.
