Publisher Comments:

LLINQ, Language INtegrated Query, is a new extension to the Visual Basic and C# programming languages designed to simplify data queries and database interaction. It addreses O/R mapping issues by making query operations like SQL statements part of the programming language. It also offers built-in support for querying in-memory collections like arrays or lists, XML, DataSets, and relational databases.

LINQ in Action is a fast-paced, comprehensive tutorial for professional developers. This book explores what can be done with LINQ, shows how it works in an application, and addresses the emerging best practices. It presents the general purpose query facilities offered by LINQ in the upcoming C# 3.0 and VB.NET 9.0 languages. A running example introduces basic LINQ concepts. You'll then learn to query unstructured data using LINQ to XML and relational data with LINQ to SQL. Finally, you'll see how to extend LINQ for custom applications.

LINQ in Action will guide you along as you explore this new world of lambda expressions, query operators, and expression trees. As well, you'll explore the new features of C# 3.0, VB.NET 9.0. The book is very practical, anchoring each new idea with running code. Whether you want to use LINQ to query objects, XML documents, or relational databases, you will find all the information you need to get started

But LINQ in Action does not stop at the basic code. This book also shows you how LINQ can be used for advanced processing of data, including coverage of LINQ's extensibility, which allows querying more data sources than those supported by default. All code samples are built on a concrete business case. The running example, LinqBooks, is a personal book cataloging system that shows you how to create LINQ applications with Visual Studio 2008.

Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF, ePub, and Kindle eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book.

Synopsis:

LINQ, Language INtegrated Query, is a new extension to the Visual Basic and C# programming languages designed to simplify data queries and database interaction. This comprehensive, fast-paced guide serves as a multi-purpose tutorial for professional developers.

Synopsis:

Dig into LINQ — and transform the way you work with data.

With LINQ, you can query data from a variety of sources — including databases, objects, and XML files — directly from Microsoft Visual Basic® or C#. Guided by data-access experts who've worked in depth with LINQ and the Microsoft development teams, you'll learn how .NET Framework 4 implements LINQ, and how to exploit it. Clear examples show you how to deliver your own data-access solutions faster and with leaner code.

Discover how to:

  • Use LINQ to query databases, object collections, arrays, XML, Microsoft Excel® files, and other sources
  • Apply LINQ best practices to build data-enabled .NET applications and services
  • Manipulate data in a relational database with ADO.NET Entity Framework or LINQ to SQL
  • Read, write, and manage XML content more efficiently with LINQ to XML
  • Extend LINQ to support additional data sources by creating custom operators and providers
  • Examine other implementations, such as LINQ to SharePoint®
  • Use LINQ within the data, business, and service layers of a distributed application
  • Get code samples on the Web

Synopsis:

With LINQ, you can query data — no matter what the source — directly from Microsoft Visual Basic or C#. Guided by two data-access experts who've worked in depth with LINQ and the Microsoft development teams, you'll learn how Microsoft .NET Framework 4 implements LINQ, and how to exploit it. Study and adapt the book's examples, complete with code samples — and deliver your own solutions faster and with leaner code.

  • Query data from databases, object collections, XML, and more with LINQ
  • Explore how LINQ works with Windows Communication Foundation, Windows Presentation Foundation, Microsoft Silverlight, Microsoft SharePoint, and ASP.NET
  • Review best practices for data-enabled Web applications, Rich Internet Applications, and service development
  • Query relational databases with LINQ to SQL or with Entity Framework to manage data, tables, views, and stored procedures
  • Read, write, and manage XML content more efficiently with LINQ to XML
  • Extend LINQ by creating custom operators and providers
