How do you break a Monolith into Microservices at Scale? This ebook shows strategies and techniques for building scalable and resilient microservices.

It is silly, but I just had a conversation with one of our developers on SQL Injection. In RavenDB we support replicating to a relational database, which obviously require using SQL. We are doing things properly, with parameters and everything.

No chance for SQL Injection from there. Great, and end of a very short blog post if it was everything.

As it turned out, there is a significant performance difference between:

@p1 = 'users/1'
@p2 = 'users/2'

DELETE FROM Users WHERE Id IN (@p1,@p1)

And:

DELETE FROM Users WHERE Id IN ('users/1', 'users/2')

Enough that we added that as an option. The reason why related to the vagaries of the database query optimizer, and not really relevant.

This is off by default, obviously. And we use parameters by choice & preference. But we still added a minimal “protection” by adding:

sqlValue.Replace("'", "''")

Considering that this isn’t meant for user’s input (it is for document ids), that is something that is annoying.

Any suggestions on how to improve this?
