Stairway to XML: Level 3 - Working with Typed XML

You can enforce the validation of an XML data type, variable or column by associating it with an XML Schema Collection.

Stairway to XML

Although XML is conceptually simple, its use as an equal partner datatype within a relational database, with full searching, validation and manipulation of data, is not intuitive. Now that the industry is more conscious of the use of semi-structured data and data defined by document markup, it is becoming more important than ever for Database Developers and DBAs to become conversant with the technology and appreciative of the cases where XML technologies enhance applications and their development. Robert Sheldon flexes his talent to make the complicated seem simple.  Read more...

Converting String Data to XML and XML to String Data

In general XML documents or fragments are held in strings as text markup. In SQL Server, XML variables and columns are instead tokenised to allow rapid access to the data within. This is fine, but can cause some odd problems, such as ' entitization'. What do you do if you need to preserve the formatting? As usual Rob Sheldon comes to our aid.   Read more...
