X and 7 or 2000 were small compared with the huge new feature set of SQL Server 2005. SQL Server 2005 expands in almost every possible dimension: server-side extensibility through the SQL-CLR integration; support for queue-based and message-based constructs and operations in the form of Service Broker; first-class XML integration as a storage object, but also through query extensions in the form of XQuery; and new T-SQL constructs like exception handling, common table expressions, output clauses, and new data types.
Creating two SQL Server data types, creating rules, and binding the rules to the types are shown in Listing 1-4.  In SQL Server 2005, alias types can also be defined with a new CREATE TYPE syntax. Listing 1-4. Creating types and binding them to rules -- define two user-defined types EXEC sp_addtype iq, 'FLOAT', 'NULL' EXEC sp_addtype shoesize, 'FLOAT', 'NULL' -- specify constraints CREATE RULE iq_range AS @range between 1 and 200 CREATE RULE shoesize_range AS @range between 1 and 20 -- bind constraint to type EXEC sp_bindrule 'iq_range', 'iq' EXEC sp_bindrule 'shoesize_range', 'shoesize' SQL Server user-defined types have some things in common with SQL distinct types.
This would be possible if shoesize were a SQL standard derived type. In addition, SQL Server user-defined types are comparable based on where the underlying built-in type is comparable, without using the SQL CAST operator. The SQL specification mandates that a user-defined type must be cast to a built-in or user-defined type before it can be used in a comparison operation, but attempting to apply the CAST operator to a user-defined type in SQL Server causes an error. Listing 1-5 shows this difference in behavior.
