Advanced T-SQL: Automate the Generation of Stored Procedures for Your Database

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Design-time automation makes coding faster and ensures that all the procedures generated use the same naming conventions and structure. In an effort to improve their coding efficiency in a large SQL project, the authors wrote a set of design-time stored procedures that generate run-time stored procedures, and have used them in project after project ever since. Recently, the authors updated their procedures to make use of SQL Server 2000 features, including user-defined functions. This article covers the creation and execution of these dynamic T-SQL scripts to automate the coding of common database stored procedures.

Security problem with cross database chaining and stored procedures

I have a situation whereby ProcA exists on database A, but ProcA executes about 20 stored procedures scattered across different databases. To further complicate matters some procs that ProcA calls also call other procs in other databases, this then presents the problem of cross database chaining where you can’t really write to a database from a proc that resides in another database. I am wondering how I can get around this problem, I know I can simply let open cross database chaining and the problem will go away, the other option is to create a proxy which is very complicated and wouldn’t work in my environment. Is there any way around the problem.

Restoring sql server database with stored procedures



I have a database that needs restoring to get a website up and running.  I am not a ASP developer (am PHP) and therefore have never used SQL Server before.

I have just tried to import one of the tables from a .txt file using SQL Server Management Studio 8 and instead of the column names being inputed, it just has "column 0", "column 1" etc.  I have noticed that I have a folder full of stored procedures, am I supposed to import these first?  Im not 100% what these stored procedures are for or the best way for me to import all this data successfully as I have so many files it will take forever to import one by one.  I dont mind doing it one by one if I have to but just want to ensure I do it all correctly first time!

Many thanks

SqlDataSource how to change the stored procedures at run time



Is it possible to change the select, insert and update stored procedure of an SqlDataSource at run time. I don't mean to change the definition of the stored procedure, but I mean to change the assignment, i.e. To change the select stored procedure from "selectSP1" to "selectSP2" at run time. Is it possible?



Test Run: Testing SQL Stored Procedures Using LINQ


Language Integrated Query makes lots of things easier. Here we put LINQ, or more specifically the LINQ to SQL provider, to use testing SQL stored procedures.

Test Run: Automate Testing of Your Stored Procs


Many Windows®-based applications have a SQL ServerT back-end component that contains stored procedures. Although techniques to automatically test functions in the front-end code are well known, the techniques to write test automation for stored procedures are not.

.NET Reflection: Dynamically Bind Your Data Layer to Stored Procedures and SQL Commands Using .NET M


One major inconvenience of using SQL stored procedures from code is having to match type information. You have to write long wrapper functions around the procedures just to expose the data types. In the .NET Framework, however, the reflection services of the System.Reflection namespace allow you to query rich metadata that describe data types. This article explains how to use reflection in .NET to end your stored procedure nightmares. The author creates four custom classes, including one that generates a SQLCommand object based on the metadata of a method. Using this library, you'll be on your way to automating the generation of stored procedures.

SQL and XML: Use XML to Invoke and Return Stored Procedures Over the Web


Front-end developers frequently want to add functionality to the presentation tier of an n-tier architecture, but such requests can require changes on all tiers just to get the data and present it. This process can be made easier and more flexible by using SQL Server stored procedures to automate the delivery of data in XML format from the database to the front-end components. In the component presented here, stored procedures are invoked by XML strings, XML is returned, converted using XSL, and presented to the client in HTML. The technique supports rapid changes yet doesn't sacrifice the n-tier approach. This approach can be used with either SQL Server 7.0 or SQL Server 2000.

Stored Procedures & SqlDataAdapter not updating a calendar control


Hi all,

I have a database linked to a calendar. I had a peice of code that retrieved dates from a database and populated the calendar. I wanted to tidy up my code using stored procedures (they seem neater & i assume there's a benefit somewhere). so i came up with this, however it's not working. The calendar displays, but it's not being populated with the database entries. The SqlCommand & SqlParameter I have working elsewhere in my code; as with the SqlDataAdapter (which also worked before i tried to conver to a stored procedure!) but combining these three (SqlCommand, SqlParameter & SqlDataAdapter) seem to be causing me problems.

It's probably something stupid but if someone could take a look and point me in the right direction, I'd be very grateful.
