Overview

This three-day intensive ADO.NET for Web Applications Using C# training class 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. It is current to .NET 4.6, Visual Studio 2015 and SQL Server 2014.

The course opens with an overview of ADO.NET and its relation to previous Microsoft data access technologies. 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 applications for the Web. The close relationship between ADO.NET and XML is covered in detail. Transactions and concurrency are covered.

Goals
  1. Learn to understand the architecture and main classes of ADO.NET.
  2. Learn to gain fluency in programming ADO.NET using C#.
  3. Learn to gain a thorough understanding of the use of disconnected DataSets for building highly scalable applications.
  4. Learn to acquire a working knowledge of the tight coupling of XML with ADO.NET.
  5. Learn to learn how to use additional features in ADO.NET, including asynchronous operations, multiple active result sets, and bulk copy.
  6. Learn to acquire a working knowledge of LINQ and the Entity Framework.
  7. Learn to implement a realistic case study that ties together many concepts of ADO.NET in a practical demonstration.
