Stored Procedure Redirect logic

We are developing an application where sometime we need to support more than one versions of that software at a time. For example Release 1-0-300 , 1-0-300-With-Test-FunctionalityA, Release 1-0-300-With-Test-FunctionalityB. Due to such requirements we sometime use the same Stored Procedure with different name in different versions for example

"**1-0-300**" uses Stored Procedures "**USP_GetProucts**"

"**1-0-300-With-Test-FunctionalityA**" uses Stored Procedures "**USP_GetProucts_FunctionalityA**"

"**1-0-300-With-Test-FunctionalityB**" uses Stored Procedures "**USP_GetProucts_FunctionalityB**"

Some Facts:

1- Why we are not using some alternate solution like we can have a Parameter "WhichStoredProcedureToCall" based on that parameter we can call the required STored Procedure? Because "USP_GetProucts" can have total different functionality than "USP_GetProucts_FunctionalityA" & these are huge stored procedures.

2- We are using SQL2008.

So my question is can we implement some type of "**Stored Procedure Redirect**", if "USP_GetProucts_FunctionalityA" not found then get the results form "USP_GetProucts"

1 answer: sort voted first

You could do that directly from your code pretty easily.

But, you could build a wrapper procedure that calls other procedures. That's a pretty standard coding methodology. It's also easy to check the row count within a proc to determine if the previous call returned anything (or even return an output parameter that says no results were forthcoming) and then call another proc.

You have choices.

+1 : definitely from code, especially if 2 similarly named procs "can have total different functionality"

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
