Service and database table

I have a sql server 2005 database and I want to keep track of 1 table with 3 fields (Number, Name, Status) in it. For example is a record is inserted into this table with a status of 1 then I want to generate a xml based on the information for that record in the table. If the status is other than 1 I do not need to worry about it. I have heard I would probably need to develop a vb service to do this, any thoughts or suggestions would be very helpful. Also any ideas requireing code would have to be in vb.net 2005. Again I thank you for any help offered in advance.

A trigger will handle the part about "when a record is inserted". The FOR XML clause will handle the creation of an XML document based on the inserted record. Neither of these require a service.

What do you want to do with the XML document once it is created? That might require a service but more likely a CLR procedure with appropriate permissions can do just about anything.

Once the xml is created I need to post it, using https: to a third party who is initially inserting the record to let them know it was inserted successfully. Perhaps your right a CLR would do the trick, but would I just create a job on the sql server to run the clr every minute or did you have something else in mind.

Depends how often this event will happen. A CLR trigger procedure could do the whole thing, but could be a problem if there are many inserts and the targer HTTPS server responds slowly or is down.  For the long term you are right, it would be best to batch this up with a process that can handle a large number of inserts and be separate from sending the acknowledgement.

Rather than reacting to the insert you could have a flag in the table that defaults to indicating the need to be processed. When the SQL job runs it looks for the flag and processes records.  You could still use a CLR procedure to keep this all inside SQL Server and not be dependent on outside services. If you ever move the database to another server it will move along with it.
