    The SQLCEDatabase plugin should be a very good template already. Please check the ISqlDatabase members that you need to implement.

    Also you have to consider SQL server login credentials: unlinke the CE version that runs in process, you need to login on SQLServer. Take a look at the MySQL provider example, it comes with an own xml configuration for connect string.

    But may I ask why you want SQLServer, while the SQLite plugin provides very good performance and has no installation and configuration requirements? Just to understand, I don't want to stop interested devs from creating plugins :)

    Thank you for quick reply sir,
    I have SQLServer database previously I created for another system and i like to connect MP2 to that database.

    I studied those two MySQL provider and SQLCEDatabase plugin.
    I studied your MP 1 SqlServerUtility.cs file for connection string creation but the implementation of that DB connection is different than MP 2 Database plugins.

    I try to understand ISqlDatabase member with comparing MySQL plugin and SQLCEDatabase plugin.

    But I couldn't understand very well how those two plugins connect databases to the server and retrieve data because my c# language knowledge is not very expert. Sir, can give me few instruction to follow to understand the connectivity and create pluging

    I migrate MySQL MP 2 server DB to SQL Server using migration tool.
    Then i rewrite coding for plugin using System.Data.SqlClient.

    I build the pluging using VS 2013 and copy the .DLL fils to 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Team MediaPortal\MP2-Server\Plugins\SQLCEDatabase'
    folder then start the 'MediaPortal 2 server service' using services window but the service is not starting.

    Please, can you give me some ideas to solve this.

    Thanx.

    I migrate MySQL MP 2 server DB to SQL Server using migration tool.
    No need to migrate an existing database. The database will be created automatically on server start. The database provider takes care for proper establishing of a connection and datatype mappings. The actual tables will be created by MP2.

    then start the 'MediaPortal 2 server service' using services window but the service is not starting.
    Please post logfiles (ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MP2-Server\log\*)

    I guess the your "migrated" DB is not compatible with the one MP2 would create by itself.

    The cause is an invalid cast of SQL Server Guid into a C# Guid:
    Code:
    [2014-09-18 17:19:46,992] [7410 ] [Main ] [FATAL] - Error starting application
    System.InvalidCastException: Specified cast is not valid.
    at System.Data.SqlClient.SqlBuffer.get_SqlGuid()
    at System.Data.SqlClient.SqlDataReader.GetGuid(Int32 i)
    at MediaPortal.Backend.Services.Database.DBUtils.ReadSimpleDBValue(Type type, IDataReader reader, Int32 colIndex)
    at MediaPortal.Database.SQLCE.SQLCEDatabase.ReadDBValue(Type type, IDataReader reader, Int32 colIndex)
    You have to check the type mapping and test what is working.

    Once you fixed this make sure to:
    1. Create a new PluginID (plugin.xml) to avoid conflicts
    2. Use a proper namespace for your new plugin (should be MediaPortal.Database.SQLServer) and name classes accordingly ("SQLDatabase" without CE).

    I previously change 'SQLserverCEDatabase' plugin codes to SQLServer then i created new project for 'SQLserverDatabase' and add add same code previously i mentioned. Then i add plugin.xml file with new package id and packages.config file but i can't find the version no for (package id="Microsoft.SqlServer" version="11.0.1") how can i find the package version.
    when i create new project and try to add refferences to that project for (MediaPortal.Backend,MediaPortal.Common and MediaPortal.utilities) but i cannot add references using Add references -> solution -> project -> MediaPortal.Backend. What is the correct way for add references.

    No need to migrate an existing database. The database will be created automatically on server start. The database provider takes care for proper establishing of a connection and datatype mappings.
    How can i create SQL server database in MP2 using database provider.

    when i creating this plugin i only build the plugin and copy the bin folder files copy to the 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Team MediaPortal\MP2-Server\Plugins\ folder, should i build complete MP2 server project and install it again?


    Thank you

    I have a MS SQL Express server running, so I thought why not finish this plugin.
    Is this something that could be of interest for MediaPortal 2? It would probably require changes to the installer or maybe even its own installer because the database creation cannot by done by the MediaPortal 2 service. If still of interest, should I create a branch?

    I also found a problem in the file: MediaLibrary-1.0-1.1.sql.
    The following SQL syntax is not supported by MS SQL:
    SQL:
    ALTER TABLE MIA_TYPES ADD COLUMN CREATION_DATE %TIMESTAMP%;
    Instead it should be:
    SQL:
    ALTER TABLE MIA_TYPES ADD CREATION_DATE %TIMESTAMP%;
    which is also supported by MySQL, SQLite and SQLCE plugins (I haven't tested the other two, are they still relevant?).

    Sure, this could be an alternative. But I wouldn't integrate it directly into installer if manual setup steps are required to get it working. So it's more an "advanced users" feature...

    Also the compatibility with the SlimTv.Service3(.5) plugins need to be checked. I only tested them with SQlite recently.
