If you're going to develop serious database applications
in C#...the kind that businesses rely on every
day…then this is the book for you.
It teaches you how to use Visual Studio 2010 and ADO.NET
4 to develop professional database applications for
both Windows and the web as quickly and easily as possible.
And it covers the full gamut of skills you need, from
using built-in data tools that generate ADO.NET code
to writing your own ADO.NET code from scratch so you
can closely control how the database processing works:
- In section 1, you'll get a basic introduction to
databases, SQL, and ADO.NET. If you already have ADO.NET
experience, you can skip ahead.
- In section 2, you'll quickly be creating database
applications using Rapid Application Development (RAD)
tools like data sources.
- In section 3, you'll build 3-layer applications
the way the pros do, with presentation, business,
and database classes. This is where you'll get into
ADO.NET coding to create your own classes. You'll
also learn how to use object data sources to make
this approach even more effective.
- In section 4, you'll develop database applications
for the web using ASP.NET 4 data controls like GridView
and DetailsView, along with object data sources.
- In section 5, you'll complete the set of skills
that every .NET database programmer should have by
learning how to (1) handle XML data in your applications,
(2) create reports with Visual Studio's Report Designer
and the ReportViewer control, (3) use LINQ to SQL
to query datasets and SQL Server databases, and (4)
use the Entity Framework and LINQ to Entities to work
with database data through an Entity Data Model.
The table of contents gives you a complete rundown
on what each chapter does. But in brief, by the time
you finish this book, you'll have gained the ADO.NET
skills that make you a top .NET developer. Try it and
see for yourself!
