This book teaches readers how to develop professional and practical database programs and apply auto-generated codes using Visual Basic.NET 2005 Design Tools and Wizards related to ADO.NET 2.0. The code can also be used with the newly released Visual Basic.NET 2008. Avoiding overly large blocks of code, the book shows a simple and easy way to create database programs and enables the reader to build professional and practical databases more efficiently. In addition to Design Tools and Wizards, the runtime object method is discussed and analyzed to allow users to design and implement more sophisticated data-driven applications with complicated coding techniques. Three popular database systems - Microsoft Access, Microsoft SQL Server 2005, and Oracle Database 109 Express Edition (XE) - are discussed in detail, with practical examples and sample projects that will help students, programmers, and software engineers alike.
