From seasoned developer and trainer Rob Macdonald comes Serious ADO: Universal Data Access with Visual Basic, which teaches experienced Visual Basic developers how to make the most of ADO, Microsoft's flagship product for database access. Serious ADO covers the full range of uses for ADO, from basic use of the ADO technology to specialized topics and advanced techniques that will benefit even the most experienced developers.
The first part of the book provides thorough coverage of ADO's components and what they can do. Along the way, Macdonald offers real-world code examples along with complete explanations of exactly what is occurring at each stage of the development process. This part also covers some of the key concepts upon which ADO programming is based, such as locking and transactions, connection pooling, marshalling, and Inter Process Communication, among others.
The second part of the book addresses the use of ADO in real-world development scenarios. Here, Macdonald demonstrates advanced user interface creation, including new ways to control the binding process. You'll also learn how to use Microsoft Transaction Server of COM+ applications to create transactional component-based systems.

I truly believe this is the most comprehensive ADO book ever There are plenty of books on ADO, and plenty claim to go into detail. 'Serious ADO' really does take ADO seriously. I have explained how the core ADO features really work, so that you can get the most out of them. I have also exposed the technology behind features like disconnected Recordsets and Data Shaping, as well as newer features such as Records and Streams, and ADOMD. 'Serious ADO' takes tough topics like MTS/COM+ and ADO Events head on - with real examples of how to use them. Finally, 'Serious ADO' will get you using ADO in a way that's in line with the future of ADO - a way that treats ADO as much more than just a means for processing SQL results.Was this review helpful?
