Get a detailed look at the internal architecture of T-SQL with this comprehensive programming reference. Database developers and administrators get best practices, expert techniques, and code samples to master the intricacies of this programming language—solving complex problems with real-world solutions.

Discover how to:

  • Work with T-SQL and CLR user-defined functions, stored procedures, and triggers.
  • Handle transactions, concurrency, and error handling.
  • Efficiently use temporary objects, including temporary tables, table variables, and table expressions.
  • Evaluate when to use set-based programming techniques and when to use cursors.
  • Work with dynamic SQL in an efficient and secure manner.
  • Treat date- and time-related data in a robust manner.
  • Develop CLR user-defined types and learn about temporal support in the relational model.
  • Use XML and XQuery and implement a dynamic schema solution.
  • Work with spatial data using the new geometry and geography types and spatial indexes.
  • Track access and changes to data using extended events, SQL Server Audit, change tracking, and change data capture.
  • Use Service Broker for controlled asynchronous processing in database applications.

All the book’s code samples will be available for download from the companion Web site.
