- Full Description
Take your pick: you may either read this book cover-to-cover, or just refer to it when you want ready-made solutions of "drop-in" code. Either way, Database Programming with Visual Basic .NET, Second Edition will teach you to master ADO.NET programmatically and from within the Visual Studio .NET IDE.
You will learn the concepts of disconnected data access with ADO.NET. You'll also learn to create tables, constraints, projects, stored procedures, views, and triggers. The book will explain how to use SQLXML 3.0 with SQL Server 2000, and how to incorporate message queuing into applications using MSMQ 3.0.
Author Carsten Thomsen, a recognized Microsoft "Most Valuable Professional," carries over one of the most popular features from the first edition: the real-world sample application that he built throughout. With this example code, you can connect to SQL Server from your choices of SQL Server .NET Data Provider, OLE DB .NET Data Provider, or ODBC .NET Data Provider. Exchange Server 2000 data manipulation is also covered, with original working code.
