Adam Machanic, Boston-based SQL Server developer, shares his experiences with programming, monitoring, and performance tuning SQL Server. And the occasional battle with the query optimizer.
Yes, yet another introduction (although there was almost zero reaction to yesterday's introduction
Today, I introduce the first thing built on top of TSQLMacro. I proudly present the TSQLAssert debug assertion framework!
For those of you who've worked with assertions before, I think you'll
enjoy this quite a bit. It provides similar functionality to assertions
in other languages, and I think it will be great for debugging and
perhaps as an addition to environments using TSQLUnit.
For those of you who haven't felt the joy that is asserting in your code, check out the following intro in the Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assertion_%28computing%29
As always, feedback is appreciated! Thank you!
