What is 'Write-ahead log' in Sql Server 2000 ?

Posted By :Athira Sreejith     Posted Date :April 23, 2009    Points :10   Category :Sql Server 
Before understanding it we must have an idea about the transaction log files. These files are the files which holds the data for change in database .
Now we explain when we are doing some Sql Server 2000 query or any Sql query like Sql insert query,delete sql query,update sql query and change the data in sql server database it cannot change the database directly to table .Sql server extracts the data that is modified by sql server 2000 query or by sql query and places it in memory.Once data is stores in memory user can make changes to that a log file is gernated this log file is gernated in every five mintues of transaction is done. After this sql server writes changes to database with the help of transaction log files. This is called Write-ahead log.

Database Concurrency in Sql Server.

  
When two or more user try to update same type of data in a table then Database Concurrency helps in this situation.

There are 2 types of Database Concurrency

Pessimistic: When one user try to change the data with pessimistic concurrency then a lock is placed on the data in a table so that another user cannot change data. when one user finishes then other user can able to change.

Optimistic: When two user works on the same data in a table and one change that data first then second user cannot change that same data becasue the which he have using is allready changed so he cannot do the change becasue change apply to another data that is changed by first user. (More...)

Is it true that COM objects no longer need to be registered on the server?

  
Yes and No. Legacy COM objects still need to be registered on the server before they can be used. COM developed using the new .NET Framework will not need to be registered. Developers will be able to auto-register these objects just by placing them in the 'bin' folder of the application. (More...)

What is the difference between Server. Transfer and Response. Redirect?

  
The Transfer method allows you to transfer from inside one ASP page to another ASP page. All of the state information that has been created for the first (calling) ASP page will be transferred to the second (called) ASP page. This transferred information includes all objects and variables that have been given a value in an Application or Session scope, and all items in the Request collections. For example, the second ASP page will have the same SessionID as the first ASP page.

When the second (called) ASP page completes its tasks, you do not return to the first (calling) ASP page. All these happen on the server side browser is not aware of this.
The redirect message issue HTTP 304 to the browser and causes browser to got the specified page. Hence there is round trip between client and server. Unlike transfer, redirect doesn't pass context information to the called page.
