Murach’s ADO.NET 4 Database Programming with C# 2010
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.
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.
