Hi!

No (AFAIK), since compiling of C# wont happen insdie SQl Server.

Your better bet would be to create windows service and read datachanges in table and call your required C# function.

Thanks!

If you enable CLR Integration, then you can execute .NET code within SQL Server. But you have to deploy the code to the server in order to do so. Have a look at:

Microsoft SQL Server is a relational database management system developed by Microsoft. As a database, it is just a software product whose primary function is to store and retrieve data as requested by other software applications,

So it's better leave it to that.

You can think of Solution like
1. Using Notification Server of SQL Server you can write to file on server.
2. Create windows service to read this file and call you C# code within Windows service.

Thanks!

sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

by dedicated sql server, i meant that only sql server would exist and most of the memory dedicated to it.. so we wouldn't put too much of other apps/tools on it.
(web server/app server/db server all separated.. that is what i meant by the word compromise)

when you said "you have to deploy the code to the server in order to do so. " i was wondering if you mean to put .net code on the database server.
