A Programmer's Guide to ADO.NET in C# by Mahesh Chand, Mike Gold

This is the book on ADO.NET! ADO.NET is the latest database technology from Microsoft and is the most powerful way to manipulate a database to date. A Programmer's Guide to ADO.NET in C# begins by taking readers through an overview of C# and then delves into ADO.NET. Mahesh Chand provides details on how to use each of .NET's major data providers, including OLE DB, SQL Server, and the release version of ODBC. This book also serves as a great reference for the methods and properties associated with these data providers' classes. In addition, Chand shows C# programmers how to work with XML classes, integrate XML into the ADO .NET architecture, and use the power of XML to transfer, read, and store data. A Programmer's Guide to ADO.NET in C# provides developers with handy ideas for taking advantage of the Visual Studio .NET IDE and for tying data to myriad, powerful Windows Forms and Web Forms, including the multifaceted DataGrid control. Chand also discusses how you can use ADO.NET to develop Web applications and create Web services. Easy-to-follow, visually rich examples illustrate how to create and execute stored procedures, work with triggers and views, create and update tables, and perform event handling in ADO.NET. Chand also guides you through the development of a Web-based guest book.

I start working with ASP.NET Web Services and Web Application and use MySQL as back end. I've seen couple of books but none of them provides good coverage on ODBC data provider. Author has done an exellent explaing database connectivity with various ODBC data sources. Good coverage of XML Services and intro to Web Applications. An above average book for ADO.NET, XML and Web database programmers. I agree with other reviewer that the author's style, which makes the book feel like a discussion with an enthusiastic co-worker rather than as a dry treatise. Normally you would think developing Web Services are a "BIG DEAL" but author explained in a way which makes Web services a "Peice of Cake". Based on this book, I wrote a Web service, which works as a Database Layer for my three ASP.NET applications to send data back and forth.

I have the greatest respect for APress and the many .NET titles they have published. I especially like Troelsens books and I was hoping this was another excellent title from APress. However, I have to say that this book is a disappointment from page one. There are so many minor mistakes in the book and towards the end it becomes worse. The author doesn't know the subject well enough to be writing a book like this. APress do yourself a favor, drop this book and make sure the author is kept on a leash in the future or simple rop him too!

I preordered this item two months ago and just got my hands on this book. Today I finished two chapters (Chapter 3 and 4). Chapter 1 and 2 are C# and Windows Programming so I skipped them. I found this book little different than the other book I have. It's not a copy of MSDN documentation. I like author's approach of discussing ADO.NET architecture and its component visually. It clears my basics about ADO.NET components and how they fit together. Any way, I'll read more and write comments in more details in a week of so. So far enjoying it. Too bad I don't see VB.NET code in it but conversion from C# to VB.NET is not a big deal. Cheers!
