HASH(0x9e97b2b8) out of 5 stars excellent book Feb. 23 2006
By John Spano - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was a very good book. It went indepth about xml and how to use it with the new sql server 2005 datatypes. He covers all aspects of xml in sql and how to best use them. Other major new features like using the clr in sql are also covered. I also liked the real world full examples the author provides.

HASH(0x9e97b504) out of 5 stars You Need this Book June 30 2006
By Mark Kelly - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are considering using XML in SQL Server 2005, this book will pay for itself quickly. The clear examples of creating XML Schema collections, altering them, etc. are very helpful.

The only problem with this book is that SQL Server 2005 does not fully support XML Schemas. Because this book was written using a beta product (I believe) perhaps the author could not have know exactly how the final version would shake out. However, partial support of standards is important to any developer. You often find out only by trial and error what is supported and what isn't. The Wrox web site offers nothing of the kind for this book. So buy this book, but be aware if you are using complex XML Schemas there may be some surprises (e.g., notation not supported).

HASH(0x9e97b4c8) out of 5 stars lazy edition April 28 2008
By A. Hagshuri - Published on
Format: Paperback
I didn't read all of it but the code samples in the first 3 chapters has a terrible mismatch with variables names. Some of the chapter's paragraphs are repeating them self.
I got the feeling they get to rush in this edition.
But you should take into account that i'm very pedantic.
Search inside before you make your decision.

HASH(0x9e97b9c0) out of 5 stars A note from the technical editor TE Jan. 21 2006
By Derek Comingore - Published on
Format: Paperback
SQL Server 2005's XML integration is a much deeper topic than most developers presume at this point, the XML data type is not all there is to "it", I assure you. The book explores all kinds of interesting facets of SQL Server's XML integration including my personal favorite, an appendix that explains XQuery in a comprehensive manner for those traditional TSQL coders. I am beginning the transition myself, from Technical Editor TE to an author via online articles and books, but I will always be available as a TE for Scott! Scott, you rock dude! And I look forward to your next book!

HASH(0x9e97bcb4) out of 5 stars Too many bugs in the codes. May 28 2008
By Christine - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book several months ago and was disappointed. One of the problem is that I am consistently debugging the codes. I am at Chapter 5 now and have spent numerous times googling to try to understand what is the correct syntex for some codes, such as using xml method for column-level contraints, which was demonstated in the book, but does not work. The other thing I don't like is the lack of explanation about the code examples. Many times, a code was throw out without clear explantion, such as how cross apply, outer apply works.
