  SQL Server Tips by Burleson

Implement encapsulation by using C++ classes

To provide a C++ encapsulation of XP’s, the key class provided by the framework is CExtendedStoredProcedure. A specified instance of the class is created in the exporting function using the IMPLEMENT_XP macro. Then the virtual function CExtendedStoredProcedure::main is called with the SRV_PROC pointer as passed to the exported function along with the name of the exported function itself. IMPLEMENT_XP is implemented as:

#define IMPLEMENT_XP(xpName, class) \
extern "C" RETCODE __declspec(dllexport) xpName(SRV_PROC* srvproc) \
{ \
class _xp; \
return _xp.main(srvproc, #xpName); \

These values are then stored as member variables in the CExtendedStoredProcedure instance, so that they can be accessed from other methods of the class. To customize the functionality of the XP, various virtual functions are provided so that you can modify the standard behaviour by overriding the appropriate function in a derived class. The two key functions which a derived class should override are BOOL

 CExtendedStoredProcedure::Run() and void

 CExtendedStoredProcedure::DisplayUsage(). ‘Run’ is the method where you should implement the code specific to your XP. Returning TRUE from this function indicates that the XP ran successfully, while FALSE indicates that an error occurred. You should override ‘DisplayUsage’ to display usage information about what parameters your XP takes. The framework calls this function automatically when the XP is called with the incorrect number of parameters.
