Hi, can anyone tell me whether its still possible to get SimMetrics running for SQL Server and if so how to go about it? As I've tried following the only page I can find on the matter

http://anastasiosyal.com/archive/2009/01/11/18.aspx

and its 'step by step' guide doesn't have enough steps. It just says compile the jar and create a dll. I've tried running the jar in Eclipse but haven't been able to create a .dll file which it says is required for the next step.

Any ideas?

you don't use the jar. you have to build a .net dll, which you can do with the c# port. that port is here:

you need to build the dll. did you build the SimMetrics.dll?

That's step 2 in the step-by-step process here: http://anastasiosyal.com/archive/2009/01/11/18.aspx in this section "3. Adding string Metric functions in MS Sql Server"

After you build it, continue with the rest of the steps.

EDIT: actually it looks like you can skip some of the steps if you download this: http://anastasiosyal.com/code/TextFunctions.zip - it has the SimMetrics.dll built in it already, and has SQL scripts to import the dll and create the CLR functions giving you access to the apis.

thanks, the reason I was having trouble is because my version of Visual Studio was too new for the download, but I've got it going now :)

Working fine for me! you guys rock!
Questions: Anybody had use the CompareStringMetrics function or child functions to group duplicates using big data sets?
Any performance issues? I am going to start that exercise in a few minutes.
