This three-day intensive ADO.NET training course teaches the essential elements of ADO.NET such that at the end of the course the programmer is able to utilize its tremendous database manipulation powers to build effective database applications. The course includes a major case study demonstrating the use of ADO.NET in a realistic setting.
The course opens with an overview of ADO.NET and its relation to previous Microsoft data access technologies, including ADO. It includes a discussion of ADO.NET architecture, main interfaces and classes, and programming with both the connected and disconnected models. The database for the case study is introduced.
The next two chapters cover in detail Connection and Command objects, which are essential in both connected and disconnected database access scenarios. The following chapter covers DataReaders, which provide a fast, forward-only reading capability. Programming with DataReaders bears a close resemblance to programming with the vintage recordset object.
Then the course focuses on the backbone of ADO.NET: DataSet and its related classes, such as DataAdapter, DataTable, DataRow, DataColumn, DataRelation, TableMappings and ColumnMappings. DataSet is able to handle multiple tables while remaining disconnected. It is eminently suited for building highly scalable enterprise applications.
Transactions and concurrency are covered. The course concludes with a hands-on treatment of additional new ADO.NET features in .NET.
ADO.NET Using C#
ADO.NET for Windows Applications Using C#
ADO.NET for Web Applications Using C#
This course is designed for experienced application developers and architects responsible for developing database applications in a Microsoft environment.
Students should have a basic knowledge of SQL and of programming the .NET Framework using C#. The student should also understand the fundamentals of XML. To get full benefit from the case studies in the course the student should be able to write simple Windows Forms applications. A working knowledge of SQL Server is also desirable.
This is a hands-on course. We apply a powerful learning cycle of short lecture, examples and labs on each topic. Each student gets lab code, the entire course content printed out (organized in a ring binder) as well as laminated reference sheets, when applicable.
Three days, 8:30 AM-4:15 PM; typically ends by 4:00 PM on Wednesday.
