ADO.NET is Microsoft's latest data access technology and, as an integral part of the .NET Framework, is far more than simply an upgrade of previous incarnations of ADO. ADO.NET provides an extensive set of .NET classes that facilitate efficient access to data from a large variety of sources, enable sophisticated manipulation and sorting of data, and forms an important framework within which to implement inter-application communication and XML Web Services.
This book provides a comprehensive guide to using ADO.NET, with plenty of practical code examples, extensive technical information, and a detailed case study. Whether you are developing Web Applications using ASP.NET, Windows Forms applications, or XML Web Services, this book will show you how to utilize .NET's data access technology to maximum effect.
This book covers:
Whether you're already developing applications within the .NET Framework, or have experience of developing data driven applications with ADO and wish to make the transition to data centric applications within .NET, then this book is for you. It is aimed at fairly experienced developers, and is not intended for the casual ASP.NET developer or the beginner.
