WebService - Enabling SQL Server 2005 Procedures

  • Article

One of the most interesting features that I'll explore is that you can now create WebServices in the database tier directly, without resorting to "add ons" or even the use of IIS at all. One of the many extensions to Transact SQL is the new CREATE ENDPOINT statement, which allows the developer to create an endpoint directly from SQL Server 2005, which hooks right into the Kernel Mode HTTP.SYS driver, exposing functions and stored procedures written either in T-SQL or native CLR methods/classes.

Question of the Day

Daylight Saving Time

I have a Sql Server 2022 instance setup with '(UTC-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada)' as timezone and a PostgreSQL 16 cluster setup with 'America/New_York' as timezone; both of them have -05:00 as UTC offset. Given that in New York, in 2024 Daylight Saving Time will begin on Sunday, March 10, at 2 AM, what happens if I execute the following statements in their own environment? Sql Server:

select dateadd(HOUR, 1, cast('20240310 01:00:00-05:00' as datetimeoffset(0)));
select date_add('20240310 01:00:00-05:00'::timestamptz, '1 hour'::interval);
