Managing Packages and Folders Programmatically

As you work programmatically with Integration Services packages, you may want to determine whether an individual package or folder exists, or to manage the folders in which packages are stored. The Application class of the Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime namespace provides a variety of methods to satisfy these requirements.

For information about enumerating available packages, see Enumerating Available Packages Programmatically. For information about loading and running saved packages programmatically, see Loading and Running a Local Package Programmatically and Loading and Running a Remote Package Programmatically.

All the methods discussed in this topic require a reference to the Microsoft.SqlServer.ManagedDTS assembly. After you add the reference in a new project, import the Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime namespace with a using or Imports statement.

Important note Important

The methods of the Application class for working with the SSIS Package Store support only ".", localhost, or the server name for the local server. You cannot use "(local)".
