Programming Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Extend your programming skills with a comprehensive study of the key features of SQL Server 2008. Delve into the new core capabilities, get practical guidance from expert developers, and put their code samples to work. This is a must-read for Microsoft .NET and SQL Server developers who work with data access—at the database, business logic, or presentation levels.

Discover how to:

  • Query complex data with powerful Transact-SQL enhancements
  • Use new, non-relational features: hierarchical tables, native file streaming, and geospatial capabilities
  • Exploit XML inside the database to design XML-aware applications
  • Consume and deliver your data using Microsoft LINQ, Entity Framework, and data binding
  • Implement database-level encryption and server auditing
  • Build and maintain data warehouses
  • Use Microsoft Excel to build front ends for OLAP cubes, and MDX to query them
  • Integrate data mining into applications quickly and effectively

Get code samples on the Web.

Book News Annotation:

This reference explores the programmability points of Microsoft SQL Server 2008, offering coverage of the latest version of the product's features along the way. Sections cover core SQL Server technologies, working with semistructured and unstructured data, database software development, and SQL Server's business intelligence features, Analysis Services and Reporting Services. For the sake of consistency, all of the .NET code in the book is written in C#. The books' code samples can be downloaded from a companion web site. The book is for .NET and Microsoft SQL Server developers who work with databases and data access, at the business logic/middle-tier layer as well as the application level. Readers should have working knowledge of .NET programming on the client and Transact-SQL on the server, and should know how to create tables, views, and stored procedures on the server. Lobel is a Microsoft development consultant. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
