Murach’s SQL Server 2008 for Developers

Save time and effort by having SQL do more of the data handling for you in every business application you write: This new book shows you how. It starts by teaching you how to create SQL queries to extract and update the data in a database. Then, it shows you how to design and implement a database, how to use powerful server-side features like cursors, views, and stored procedures, how to work with XML and BLOB data, and how to use CLR integration to create database objects in C# or VB.
