If you know the basics of Visual Basic, this book will have you using ADO.NET to develop full-featured database applications in no time. It covers all the crucial ADO.NET skills for both Windows and web applications, including (among other things) a short database primer for beginners, data tools that let you bind data to controls to save you hours of coding, SQL queries, database classes for 3-layer applications, XML, introductions to LINQ and the Entity Framework, and the most practical coverage of the Report Designer and Report Viewer for local reports that we've seen.

This beginner's guide to Microsoft's ADO.NET 4, a component of the .NET programming framework, provides step-by-step instructions for managing data and databases with this powerful software tool. The work begins with an introduction to database programming and an overview of the ADO.NET 4 environment and covers topics such as data sources and datasets, bound controls and parameterized queries, using the Dataset Designer, creating a sample payable entry application, SQL data sources, XML data, reporting in Visual Studio and how to use LINQ. Chapters include illustrations, screen shots and code examples as well as practice exercises. Access to additional online resources including sample applications is provided.
