Data Access Solutions in .NET

In languages of the 90’s, ADO (ActiveX Data Objects) was the most common data access method used for client/server projects. For the .NET Framework, ADO, called ADO.NET, has been redesigned and extended for distributed Internet use. It is the primary data access strategy for C# and Visual Basic and uses the same methods for local, client/server or Internet access.

In this course, students fully discuss and use the ADO.NET model. Topics include understanding ADO.NET, managed providers, understanding and using DataSets and accessing XML through ADO.NET. Code is provided in C# and Visual Basic.
