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"

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.

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