CLR Programmability Samples

[This topic is pre-release documentation and is subject to change in future releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

This section describes sample applications, package samples, and coding samples that you can use to learn about the common language runtime (CLR) programmability features of SQL Server.

SQL Server samples and sample databases must be downloaded and installed before you can view or work with them. For more information, see Considerations for Installing SQL Server Samples and Sample Databases.

Samples are provided for educational purposes only. They are not intended to be used in a production environment and have not been tested in a production environment. Microsoft does not provide technical support for these samples. Sample applications and assemblies should not be connected to or used with your production SQL Server database or your report server without the permission of the system administrator.

Name Description

Readme_AdventureWorks Cycles CLR Layer Sample

Provides utilities that form an extra layer of functionality on top of the base AdventureWorks2008R2 sample database.

Readme_Supplementary-Aware String Manipulation Sample

Shows the implementation of five supplementary character-aware Transact-SQL string functions that can handle both Unicode and supplementary character strings.

Readme_Large Object (LOB) Handling Sample

Demonstrates transferring large binary objects (LOBs) between SQL Server and a file system that can be accessed by the server by using CLR stored procedures

Readme_In-Process Data Access Sample

Contains a number of simple functions demonstrating various features of the CLR in-process data access provider.

Readme_String Utilities Sample

Contains a streaming table-valued function, written in C# and Visual Basic, that splits a comma-separated string into a table with one column.

Readme_UDT Utilities Sample

Contains a number of user-defined data type utility functions.

Readme_UDT Sample

Shows the creation and use of a simple user-defined data type from both Transact-SQL and a client application using System.Data.SqlClient

Readme_UTF8 UDT Sample

Demonstrates the implementation of a user-defined data type that extends the type system of the database to provide storage for UTF8 encoded values.

Readme_Calendar-Aware Date/Time UDT Sample

Defines two user-defined data types (CADatetime and CADate), which provide calendar-aware handling of dates and times.

Readme_Result Set Sample

Demonstrates how to use server-side cursors to work around the lack of Multiple Active Result Set (MARS) support for server-side programming.

Readme_Array Parameter Sample

Demonstrates how to pass an array of information from a client to a CLR integration stored procedure on the server by using a CLR integration user-defined data type.

Readme_Hello World Sample

Demonstrates the basic operations that are involved in creating, deploying, and testing a simple CLR integration-based stored procedure.

Readme_Hello World Ready Sample

Demonstrates the basic operations that are involved in creating, deploying, and testing a simple world ready CLR integration-based stored procedure.

Readme_Spatial Sample

Demonstrates how you can use CLR integration technology to enhance the basic indexing and query capabilities to support more sophisticated types of data and queries over that data.

Readme_Oracle TVF Sample

Demonstrates how to invoke the managed code interface to Oracle to expose the results of any Oracle query as a table-valued function.

Readme_Send DataSet Sample

Demonstrates how to return an ADO .NET based DataSet within a server side CLR-based stored procedure as a result set to the client.

Readme_System.Transactions Sample

Demonstrates controlling transactions by using the managed APIs located in the System.Transactions namespace.

Readme_Assembly Cleanup Sample

Demonstrates how to clean-up unused assemblies in the current database by querying the metadata catalogs.

Readme_Time Series Sample

Demonstrates how to examine stock market data to identify the trend represented by the sequence of observations, and make some future prediction based on the data.
