The syntax for Creating Stored Procedure:

Advantages of using the Stored Procedure:

1- Increase Performance:

The Stored Procedure increases the performance by reducing the amount of data sent to the database server. Stored Procedure becomes more useful when we have a server with less bandwidth.

2- Recompilation is not required:

The normal SQL Statement is compiled every time when it is sent to the server for execution whereas Stored Procedure compiled only once when it is created. It does not require recompilation before execution until it is modified.

3-Provides Code ReUSability:

As we have already discussed with Stored Procedure we don’t need to write a SQL Code over again and again. We create a Stored Procedure once and it can be used by multiple clients on the server for multiple times.

4- Store Business Logic:

We can use a Stored Procedure to store Business Logic of the component. It is secure to Store Business Logic in a Stored Procedure. If we need to change our business logic then we may only need to change the logic inside the Stored Procedure not in the files contained on the Web Server.

Example OF Stored Procedure in SQL Server:

Create the following Database and Table.


Stored Procedure for Inserting Record in Employee Table:

Stored Procedure for Reading Records in Employee Table:
