Developer's Guide to SQL Server CLR Integration

by Kevin Murray

Learn how to write and deploy CLR functionality written in .NET managed code into your SQL Server environment. You'll also get tips on when NOT to use CLR, as well as how to broach the topic with your database administrator.

What you'll learn

Since SQL Server 2005, database stored procedures and functions can be written in .NET managed code targeted for the Common Language Runtime (CLR). This course walks the viewer through the steps required to create functions, stored procedures, triggers, aggregates, and user defined types with Visual Studio 2012. There is a specific module on how to approach a database administrator that may be less than eager to host CLR assemblies in SQL Server. There are also modules covering setup, permissions, troubleshooting, and times when it is not appropriate to use CLR in SQL Server.
