ADO.NET Cookbookby Bill Hamilton
Synopses & Reviews
Designed in the highly regarded O'Reilly Cookbook format, ADO.NET Cookbook is strikingly different from other books on the subject. It isn't bogged down with pages of didactic theory. The ADO.NET Cookbook focuses exclusively on providing developers with easy-to-find coding solutions to real problems.
ADO.NET Cookbook is a comprehensive collection of over 150 solutions and best practices for everyday dilemmas. For each problem addressed in the book, there's a solution--a short, focused piece of code that programmers can insert directly into their applications.
And ADO.NET Cookbook is more than just a handy compilation of cut-and-paste C# and VB.NET code. ADO.NET Cookbook offers clear explanations of how and why the code works, warns of potential pitfalls, and directs you to sources of additional information, so you can learn to adapt the problem-solving techniques to different situations. This is a painless way for developers who prefer to learn by doing to expand their skills and productivity, while solving the pressing problems they face every day.
These time-saving recipes include vital topics like connecting to data, retrieving and managing data, transforming and analyzing data, modifying data, binding data to .NET user interfaces, optimizing .NET data access, enumerating and maintaining database objects, and maintaining database integrity.
The diverse solutions presented here will prove invaluable over and over again, for ADO.NET programmers at all levels, from the relatively inexperienced to the most sophisticated.
Book News Annotation:
Offers 153 solutions, complete with code and explanations, to problems commonly encountered when using ADO.NET to support data access in loosely coupled n-tier application architectures. The solutions demonstrate how to connect to data sources from ADO.NET, retrieve data using SQL statements, search for records in views and tables, copy data between ADO.NET classes, bind data to forms, and improve application performance. The code examples are written in C#.
