Helps you, the developer, choose and implement the best data access technologies for your project
Suitable for newer and for more experienced ADO developers–anyone involved in data access development will benefit from this book
From the author of the definitive Hitchihiker’s Guide to Visual Basic and SQL Server comes a book that provides real solutions for data access developers. Veteran author and programmer William Vaughn has condensed tips, suggestions, and insights from years of experience working with front-line data access developers and development teams. ADO Examples and Best Practices focuses on addressing ADO problems at the root–and offers better designs and better coding practices.
Today’s developers are faced with a dizzying number of choices when it comes to data access paradigms. This book makes implementing the best of those technologies far easier by showing you working examples and discussing what works and what doesn’t. "Best Practices" are those techniques developers have found to cause the least amount of overhead, problems, and confusion. While some are quite simple to implement, others require considerable thought and forethought to enable.
Topics covered include: introduction to ActiveX Data Objects, creating ADO objects, ADO command strategies, Recordset strategies, manipulating your Recordset, calling and managing stored procedures, Web-based solutions, data access tips and techniques, what’s coming in SQL Server 2000 and ADO 2.6, and more.
