Bulk operations with MS SQL TVP parameters
One of the coolest features of ADO.NET provider are table-valued parameters. They greatly simplify bulk operations. Create user defined table type, and you can pass data table as parameter, if it reflects the table type structure.
create type dbo.Tag as table( postId int not null, name nvarchar(50) not null )
With SqlFun, you can use TVP-s even easier way, since you can use list of records, instead of a data table:
let updateTags: int -> Tag list -> DataContext -> unit = sql "delete from tag where postId = @id; insert into tag (postId, name) select postId, name from @tags"
Lists, that are parts of some record, can be used too:
let updateTags: Post -> DataContext -> unit = sql "delete from tag where postId = @id; insert into tag (postId, name) select postId, name from @tags"
To make this feature available, you have to define sql and storedproc functions using defaults from SqlFun.MsSql instead of SqlFun.Queries:
let createConnection () = new SqlConnection(connectionString) let generatorConfig = MsSql.createDefaultConfig createConnection let sql commandText = sql generatorConfig commandText let proc procName = proc generatorConfig procName
