Is it possible to write a SQL Server™ stored procedure that takes an XML document as input and inserts the information into tables? The process of pulling an XML document apart and inserting the data into tables is often referred to as shredding. Transact-SQL (T-SQL) makes XML shredding possible through the OPENXML statement. OPENXML creates rowset views on top of in-memory XML documents. As a rowset provider, OPENXML rowsets can be used in T-SQL statements wherever traditional rowsets may be ca...

The Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a subset of the Standard Generalised Markup Language (SGML), the standard for creating markup documents. Unlike HTML, another markup language based on SGML, XML allows you to describe data and its structure rather than display it. XML is not a replacement for HTML, but compliments it by allowing the author to describe their own tags. XML is extensible as the author can create an unlimited number of tags. There are no predefined tags in XML....

While XQuery was designed for querying large document bases, it's a fine tool for transforming simple documents as well. XQuery is a W3C standard for extracting information from XML documents, currently spanning 14 working drafts. While the majority of interest in XQuery is centered around querying large bases of semi-structured document data, XQuery can be surprisingly effective for some much more mundane uses as well. XQuery was designed for extracting data from potentially very large XML data...

Demostrates how to render report by passing xml to data extension via soap calls.
This example uses an ASP.Net filter page to construct an xml which then is used as a parameter passed into reporting service web service call to render the report. The xml parameter is intercepted by a custom data extension DLL which is registered under reporting web service. The custom data extension parses the xml decides which business component web service method to call that will get the dataset to be retur...

Using XML for data access allows you to separate the data from the presentation, and promotes reuse, extensibility, and division of labor. XML also has a simplified data model, which promotes easier testing.
This article presents and compares five data access approaches, using a variety of technologies including ASP and ADO, XSLT, and DirectXML. Once built, the solutions are compared on the basis of their speed and efficiency...

XML is becoming the ubiquitous data format on the Web, and XML support in SQL Server is evolving to meet the additional demand. Using XML, SOAP, HTTP, and SQL Server, you can now build powerful Web Services easily. To show just how simple it is with SQLXML 3.0, this article walks the reader through the process step by step, from setting up a virtual directory enabling data access via HTTP to executing queries and building Web Services. Finally, the author illustrates the creation of two Web Serv...

XPath is emerging as a universal query language. With XPath, you can identify and process a group of related nodes in XML-based data sources. XPath provides an infrastructure that is integral to XML support in the .NET Framework. The XPath navigation model is even used under the hood of the XSLT processor. In this article, the author reviews the implementation details of the XPath navigator and the XSLT processor and includes practical examples such as asynchronous transformations, sorted node-s...

Today Web services—specifically distributed services that process XML-encoded SOAP messages, sent over HTTP, and described using Web Services Description Language (WSDL)—are being deployed broadly. (The terms XML, SOAP, and HTTP are in common use today and in many respects their use has moved beyond their original acronyms. For completeness these acronyms are listed here: XML—eXtensible Markup Language, SOAP—Simple Object Access Protocol, and HTTP—HyperText Transfer Protocol.) Web services are u...

Extend the ASP.NET WebMethod Framework by Adding XML Schema Validation

Read Reviews | Write Review |  Your Rating: 

WebMethods make the development of XML Web Services easier by encapsulating a good deal of functionality, but there is still a lot of underlying XML processing that you have to be responsible for. For example, WebMethods do not validate messages against the implied schema. Because they are not validated, the response that's returned can result in unintended consequences. To address this, the authors extend the WebMethod framework by adding XML Schema validation through a custom SoapExtension cla...

Q How do keys work in XSLT?
A Keys in XSLT are similar to IDs in Document Type Definitions (DTDs). If you define an attribute of type ID in a DTD, the attribute value must be unique in the document. You can also define attributes of type IDREF. In this case, the attribute value must refer to a unique ID value somewhere else in the document. With this type of DTD information in place, you can then use XPath's id function in order to resolve IDs and IDREF relationships in a document at run time...
