Development of SQL 2008 SSIS Packages Requires SSIS Service

Published On: 2008-12-22By:

Unlike in SQL 2005, when developing SSIS packages in SQL Server 2008 BIDS you must have the SSIS service installed on your workstation.  This is a change from SQL Server 2005 where you did not have to have the actual SSIS service installed on your workstation.

It doesn’t appear that you actually need to have the service running.  I have stopped the SSIS service on my workstation and I am still able to run my SQL 2008 SSIS packages, however I would recommend setting it to manual rather then disabled just in case BIDS needs it running for some reason.

If you try and edit an existing package without the SSIS service installed an error message will be displayed saying that the service needs to be installed.

Its time for a code freeze again

Published On: 2008-12-18By:

Its the holidays again, and that means its time for a code freeze. Code freeze’s are handy for a few reasons.

  1. People like to take vacations this time of year for some reasons. With a code freeze in place everyone can spend the holidays with family rather than with the servers.
  2. With everyone taking time off, if new code has a problem finding the people who actually wrote the code may be an issue.
  3. It boosts staff moral to not have to worry about pushing new features into production on a skeleton staff.
  4. It keeps the families of the staff happy to have them home around this time of year.

While it doesn’t help make the company and money to freeze code, it simply makes everyone happy, and isn’t that what this time of year is really all about.

Back To Basics: Getting Data from an XML Document

Published On: By:

One of the most popular ways to get data multiple pieces of data in a single parameter from one stored procedure to another, or from a client application to the database is to use XML. This can be done in SQL Server 2000 by using the NTEXT (or TEXT) datatype, and in SQL 2005 using the XML datatype. (In SQL Server 2008 you can use Table variable input parameters.)
