White Paper Summary
SQL Server 2005 provides the database application programmer with a rich new development platform by hosting the .NET Framework Common Language Runtime environment (CLR). With new capabilities come new roles and responsibilities for the Database Administrator (DBA). This whitepaper helps the DBA determine appropriate use of this new feature and guidance on when other alternatives may provide better performance, flexibility or capabilities. As well as offering guidance on suitable uses for the Database Engine .NET Framework Programming API this whitepaper also suggests code, change and release management processes that should be tailored to each DBA’s individual circumstances to ensure a professional and safe deployment.
