SQL 2012 Developer, Part 02: Stored Procedures

with expert Don Kiely

In this course we’ll start by looking at stored procedure features and the benefits of using them. Then you’ll learn about the syntax of the CREATE PROCEDURE statement, and some of the options for using stored procedures, including input and output parameters, return values, and results sets. You’ll also learn how to debug these code modules, as well as shape the results when executing a stored procedure. Then you’ll learn about a special kind of stored procedure, a trigger. A trigger runs automatically in response to changes to your data, letting you enforce complex business rules and perform other actions. You’ll learn about the different kinds of triggers as well as some risks in their use, then we’ll get into the details of creating and using triggers effectively.
