This is just a short article (more of a blog-ette than a full blog) about some things we as developers need to consider when sending queries to Microsoft’s SQL Server. While some of this information may also be true for other flavors of database servers, these things are known to be true for SQL Server.
Every long-term project will outlive at least some of the technologies it was originally built with. For example, a project I have been involved with recently ran into this situation. The app is hosted on Heroku, and over the years, the available MongoDB add-ons have changed and dwindled until now, there is only one.
Several migrations between MongoDB add-ons have already happened because of shutdowns. So, it was decided that rather than migrating to the last one still in existence, the project would switch to using PostgreSQL, which is supported directly by the Heroku team.
I was recently tasked with summarizing the data of a several-million-row table, and the task proved to be a bit grueling at first. Eventually, I found a way to summarize the large dataset with Spring Batch, but not without a wrong turn or two at first. In this post, I’ll walk you through my process and how I overcame this …
I am working on a project that leverages both Azure Functions as well as Cosmos DB. In trying to get both of these components wired together, I found that there are very few examples that work with the most recent versions of these components. I also saw examples that could work at a small scale, but don’t show industry-standard best practices, and would lead to performance issues if deployed in an environment with any meaningful traffic.
To that end, I put together this blog post showing how to set up an Azure Functions project in .NET Core 2.2 to integrate with Cosmos DB’s SQL API using its native tooling.
