Topic: XML Without Xanax – A Guide to Anxiety-Free XML in SQL Server
Session Level: Intermediate
Description: Do you cringe whenever you have to look at an XML document? Does the very thought of XML data living in your database make you scream? Do you have a panic attack any time you have to parse XML? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this session is for you!
We’ll start off easy with some reasons why having XML in SQL Server might actually be a good thing. Then we’ll start to face our fears as we turn some tabular data into XML, and finally we’ll confront the true source of our anxiety by parsing some XML back into tabular data using xQuery.
If you make it through this session alive, you’ll have faced your fears about XML in SQL Server, you’ll have a solid understanding of how to create XML from tabular data, and you’ll know how to use xQuery to parse XML.
