Product Description

From the Back Cover

SQL Server 2005 offers the capability to write code in a .NET language that can be compiled and run inside SQL Server. CLR Integration, or SQL CLR, lets you create stored procedures, user-defined types, triggers, table valued functions, and aggregates using a .NET managed language. You can read and write to resources outside of SQL Server and enjoy a tighter integration with XML, web services, and simple file and logging capabilities.

Here's the reference you'll want on your desk as you develop SQL CLR solutions. It helps you decide whether to use SQL CLR, how to lock down security, and learn from real examples. If you want to develop stored procedures or other objects in .NET for SQL Server 2005, this book offers exactly what you need.

What you will learn from this book

  • The concepts and architecture of SQL CLR
  • Uses of .NET namespaces in SQL Server programming tasks
  • How to develop and benchmark routines in T-SQL and .NET to determine when CLR-based solutions are advantageous
  • How to replace extended stored procedures using SQL CLR stored procedures
  • How to use SQL CLR objects in external applications
  • How to restrict and secure SQL CLR object capabilities
  • Processes and procedures for deploying SQL CLR objects

Who this book is for

This book is for developers and architects who are familiar with .NET concepts as well as DBAs who, although developers in their own right, may be slightly less up to date on .NET. A solid grounding in T-SQL is necessary.

Wrox Professional guides are planned and written by working programmers to meet the real-world needs of programmers, developers, and IT professionals. Focused and relevant, they address the issues technology professionals face every day. They provide examples, practical solutions, and expert education in new technologies, all designed to help programmers do a better job.

Authors spend a lot of effort discussing basic concepts of .NET and SQL Server, almost as though writing for a beginner audience, and leave many of the features of CLR integration uncovered. Examples are poor and much material is repeated from example to example. Poorly organized, poorly written, poorly edited. Save your money.

Taking .NET Inside the Data Base Jan. 12 2007
By John Matlock - Published on
Format: Paperback
Microsoft's Common Language Runtime (CLR) is a series of subroutines that basically make up the foundation of a programming language. This is an integral part of Microsoft's .NET framework which is basically an extension of the operating system to provide additional functionality. And of course to tie the user to the Microsoft operating system.

In SQL Server 2005, CLR has been built into the database itself so that developers can approach problems by programming in either SQL or CLR or a combination of both. This book is a general introduction to programming in CLR with SQL Server 2005. It is intended to be an 'open book' that you would keep open in front of you as you program using the CLR functions.

These is some discussion in the book about the decision to use CLR or to stay with SQL, but obviously these authors are believers in CLR. If nothing else, reading the book will give you a good idea about CLR and whether you want ot use it or not.

Note that since the announcement of .NET, the developers of Linux, Oracle and others have announced that they will also offer .NET/CLR support. It appears this is going to be the way and the light in the future.
