Dynamic XPath function with SqlClr in SQL Server

November 14, 2009 adglopez No comments

In my previous post I commented an approach to perform queries with dynamic XPath. It was useful initially to determine the result in a stand alone sql sentence, for example:

exec sp_XPath @xml, @xpath, @result output

But if we need to use it for example in a where clause we’ll need a function. Since the previous approach uses sp_executesql it doesn’t suit well in SQL Server.

So I decided to use SqlClr to create the function:

To create the assembly just add a new SqlClr C# Project, add a user defined function and paste this code:

using System;
using System.Data;
using System.Data.SqlClient;
using System.Data.SqlTypes;
using Microsoft.SqlServer.Server;
using System.Xml;
using System.Xml.XPath;
using System.IO;
using System.Text;

public partial class UserDefinedFunctions
	public static SqlString XPath(SqlXml message, string xpath)
		if (message.IsNull || string.IsNullOrEmpty(xpath))
			return string.Empty;

		XPathDocument doc = new XPathDocument(new StringReader(message.Value));
		XPathNavigator nav = doc.CreateNavigator();
		XPathExpression expr = nav.Compile(xpath);
		string result = string.Empty;

		switch (expr.ReturnType)
			case XPathResultType.Boolean:
			case XPathResultType.Number:
			case XPathResultType.String:
				result = nav.Evaluate(expr).ToString();

			case XPathResultType.NodeSet:
				XPathNodeIterator iterator = (XPathNodeIterator)nav.Evaluate(expr);
				XmlDocument xmldoc = new XmlDocument();
				XmlNodeList nodes = xmldoc.SelectNodes(xpath);
				foreach (XmlNode node in nodes)
					result += node.OuterXml;

			case XPathResultType.Error:
				throw new ArgumentException("Invalid XPath query.");
		return new SqlString(result);

Hope this helps :)
