Applied ADO.NET: Building Data-Driven Solutions provides extensive coverage of ADO.NET technology, including ADO.NET internals, namespaces, classes, and interfaces. Whereas most books cover only the SQL and OLE DB data providers, authors Mahesh Chand and David Talbot detail the SQL, OLE DB, and ODBC data providers, as well asadditions to ADO.NET, the Oracle, MySQL, and XML .NET data providers. Chand and Talbot also cover the internals of data binding and provide detailed coverage of both Windows Forms and Web Forms data binding and data-bound controls. Because XML plays a major role in .NET development, the authors take a comprehensive look at XML namespaces and classes, and how to integrate both with ADO.NET.

The book begins with the basics of ASP.NET and data-bound controls. It then delves into the internals of data binding and shows how to use DataGrid, DataList, and other data-bound controls in real-world applications. Chand and Talbot also discuss the ASP.NET guest book, database XML Web services, and even an online bookstore site development and design process.

The book also covers

  • How to create a custom data provider
  • Event handling
  • Server-side programming
  • Data relations and constraints
  • Active Directory
  • Messaging
  • Exception and error handling
  • The object relational model

Advanced developers will learn from the coverage of ADO.NET architecture, related design issues, and how ADO.NET data providers are designed.

    One of the most Comprehensive ADO.NET Book

    I am a veteran Visual Basic developer and I think this is one of the most comprehensive book on ADO.NET technology out there. Book covers topics that are rarely found in MSDN or other books. Authors not only cover ADO.NET architecture in depth, they also show how to deal with real world problems. I highly recommed this book for any developer who is writing VB.NET applications or moving from VB6 to .NET. Cheers! Duncan

    I just got my hands on this title and couldn't believe that author already covers the latest additions to ADO.NET. This book is wrtten using Visual Studio .NET 2003 which means I dont have to buy another book for next couple of years. I also noticed detailed discussion on Windows Data-Bound Controls and ASP.NET Server Data Bound Controls which you don't find in many of the book. This book shows you how to use most of the Windows Controls in data binding such as TextBox, CheckBox, ComboBox, ListBox, DataGrid and others. I give it a 5+ stars. Hope it helps other guys.
