This Book gives a good idea on Ado.net and Creating a Custom .NET Data Provider
ADO.NET is a large set of .NET classes that enable us to retrieve and manipulate data, and update data
sources, in very many different ways. As an integral part of the .NET framework, it shares many of its features:
features such as multi-language support, garbage collection, just-in-time compilation, object-oriented design,
and dynamic caching, and is far more than an upgrade of previous versions of ADO.
This book provides a thorough investigation of the ADO.NET classes (those included in the System.Data,
System.Data.Common, System.Data.OleDb, System.Data.SqlClient, and System.Data.Odbc
namespaces). We adopt a practical, solutions-oriented approach, looking at how to effectively utilize the
various components of ADO.NET within data-centric application development.
Thanks so much for this good article.
