CLR v TSQL Stored Procedures
I am here in Redmond chatting with a few fellow .NET gurus about SQL Server and Yukon’s ability to create stored procedures with any CLR language. We have decided, TSQL for everything, except when you 1. need something from the .NET framework like encryption or RegEx and 2. you are doing something that is a very CPU intensive operation.
So why bother with the CLR inside of Yukon? I think that the convergence is a good thing, but TSQL will be around for a long time (as it should be). It is not an every day occurrence that you will use the CLR (think replacement for extended stored procedures), but when you need it, you will be very thankful.
So I am going to make a prediction that a lot of people will try to create their whole app around CLR stored procedures when they fire up Yukon for the first time. Please don’t fall in this trap!
