Chapter 8: SQL Server and the Web


We could open this chapter with personal opinions about SQL Server, but the gentle reader might suspect us of copying Microsoft's marketing hype. All things considered, SQL Server is probably the most comprehensive database product on the market—it's easy to implement and use, it's reliable and stable, and it's scalable. Furthermore, if you're already familiar with the relational database model, learning to use SQL Server shouldn't be too difficult. (Administrators might have a bigger, but still manageable, task at hand; but that statement would ring true for any database system.)

SQL Server has everything a database developer/administrator could want—analysis tools, replication, data mining, security, integration with .NET, indexed views, and so on. Most important (for the reader of this book) is that SQL Server 2000 is fully web-enabled. That means you should have no trouble getting a website to communicate with SQL Server 2000.
