A beta of SqlXml Web release 3,
sp2 has been released.
Normally a service pack release is not very exciting, but this release contains two
key fixes to SqlXml WR3:
1. Identity value Propagation for
Xml Bulkload – allows one to load nested Xml into multiple tables and have an identity
value generated and propagated to the child based on primary key – foreign key relationships.
2. When sending a SqlXml SOAP requests
to/ from Visual Studio .NET 2003, you can now pass a NULL for value-typed parameters.
The former of the two fixes has been
an adoption blocker for a lot of SqlXml users, so anyone currently using Xml Bulkload
The new release also lifts the requirement
that Sql client tools is installed. Now
only MDAC is required.
