Using Stored Procedures? Take SPCaller for a Spin

The code for the SPCaller component that I discussed in a previous posting is now available for download at RIAForge.

I have added some tickets to the Issue Tracker for possible enhancements. If anyone downloads the code and is interested in these, or any other enhancements, please contact me. I'd also be very interested to hear from anyone that gives it a try and finds it useful.

What follows are some implementation and usage notes. They will probably be less than interesting to anyone who isn't planning on trying out the component ;-)


SPCaller - A Component That Calls Stored Procedures

SPCaller is a component that automatically calls stored procedures (SPs) for you. I wrote it several years ago, and have been using in most of my projects since then. Well, that's not exactly true. I used it in most of my projects until about a year ago, at which point I started drinking the ORM kool-aid. Now I hardly use any SPs any more.

Still, if you're using SPs it is a very useful tool. It's probably saved me hundreds of hours over its life span, so I thought it worth releasing as my first ever Open Source project.
