ADO.NET and ADO Examples and Best Practices for VB Programmers

Bill Vaughn, author of ADO.NET and ADO Examples and Best Practices for VB Programmers (and its sister book for C# programmers), is a name synonymous with Microsoft database products. He s a regular speaker on MS product conference circuits where he clearly communicates a serial stream of understanding to his audience. Only the ripples of bad puns (which naturally find their way into this book) disturb the otherwise serious tone of his presentations.

 

In his latest title, Bill details what experienced ADO programmers should think about and how to program with ADO.NET s new classes. The first one-eighth of the book sets up the ADO.NET environment. Then, Vaughn uses the bulk of the space to provide experienced tips and strategies for optimizing recordsets and ADO.NET objects, including DataSet, DataReader, and DataTable.

 

He also discusses ADO.NET data filtering, finding, sorting, and updating. In particular, the chapters on constraint strategies and error management are welcome inclusions, and the book closes with a chapter on ADO.NET and XML. Although this topic has been more deeply explored in other .NET XML books, it rounds out this book nicely.

 

The companion CD contains ADO.NET setup instructions and sample code, which earns this title bonus points for helping eager readers get started immediately.
