Do you cringe whenever you have to look at an XML document? Does the very thought of XML data living in your database make you scream? Do you have a panic attack any time you have to parse XML? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this session is for you!
We’ll start with reasons why having XML in SQL Server might be a good thing, then we’ll face our fears and turn tabular data into XML, and finally we’ll confront the true source of our anxiety by parsing XML back into tabular data using xQuery.
If you survive this session, you’ll have faced your fears about XML in SQL Server, you’ll have a solid understanding of creating XML from tabular data, and you’ll know how to use xQuery to parse XML.
