Building Custom Tasks for SQL Server Integration Services (Paperback)Andy Leonard (author)
- We can order this
Why are custom components necessary? Because even though the SSIS catalog of built-in tasks and components is a marvel of engineering, there do remain gaps in the functionality that is provided. These gaps are especially relevant to enterprises practicing Data Integration Lifecycle Management (DILMS) and/or DevOps.
One of the gaps is a limitation of the SSIS Execute Package task. Developers using the stock version of that task are unable to select SSIS packages from other projects. Yet it's useful to be able to select and execute tasks across projects, and the example used throughout this book will help you to create an Execute Catalog Package task that does in fact allow you to execute a task from another project. Building on the example's pattern, you can create any task that you like, custom tailored to your specific, data integration and ETL needs.
What You Will LearnConfigure and execute Visual Studio in the way that best supports SSIS task development
