ADO.NET in a Nutshell
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Released: April 2003
Pages: 624

Written by experts on the Microsoft® .NET programming platform, ADO.NET in a Nutshell delivers everything .NET programmers will need to get a jump-start on ADO.NET technology or to sharpen their skills even further. In the tradition of O'Reilly's In a Nutshell Series, ADO.NET in a Nutshell is the most complete and concise source of ADO.NET information available.

ADO.NET is the suite of data access technologies in the .NET Framework that developers use to build applications services accessing relational data and XML. Connecting to databases is a fundamental part of most applications, whether they are web, Windows®, distributed, client/server, XML Web Services, or something entirely different. But ADO.NET is substantially different from Microsoft's previous data access technologies--including the previous version of ADO--so even experienced developers need to understand the basics of the new disconnected model before they start programming with it.

Current with the .NET Framework 1.1, ADO.NET in a Nutshell offers one place to look when you need help with anything related to this essential technology, including a reference to the ADO.NET namespaces and object model. In addition to being a valuable reference, this book provides a concise foundation for programming with ADO.NET and covers a variety of issues that programmers face when developing web applications or Web Services that rely on database access. Using C#, this book presents real world, practical examples that will help you put ADO.NET to work immediately.

Topics covered in the book include:

  • An Introduction to ADO.NET
  • Connections, Commands and DataReaders
  • Disconnected Data
  • Advanced DataSets
  • Transactions
  • DataViews and Data Binding
  • XML and the DataSet
Included with the book is a Visual Studio .NET add-in that integrates the entire reference directly into your help files. When combining ADO.NET in a Nutshell with other books from O'Reilly's .NET In a Nutshell series, you'll have a comprehensive, detailed and independent reference collection that will help you become more productive.

The book seems to speak with people...

By Eduardo Cesar Lunardelli

Comments about oreilly ADO.NET in a Nutshell:

The book has a thing with people, I a time listened to a pupil mine speaking that the book seemed to speak with it..., and thought it must be being wild...!

But when I started to read this book, also I had this sensation, I liked and I recommend!

Comments about oreilly ADO.NET in a Nutshell:

I was having problems in the MS generated code...

I know surprise surprise but this book had the solution I needed... and I looked everywhere. MS docs, net and many many books.

This book is the hard core one that goes into the nitty gritty. All the other just seem to say the same things in a different way while this one delves into the beastie.

thanks!
