Serious ADO: Universal Data Access with Visual Basic
From seasoned developer and trainer Rob Macdonald comes Serious ADO: Universal Data Access with Visual Basic, which teaches experienced Visual Basic developers how to make the most of ADO, Microsoft's flagship product for database access. Serious ADO covers the full range of uses for ADO, from basic use of the ADO technology to specialized topics and advanced techniques that will benefit even the most experienced developers.
The first part of the book provides thorough coverage of ADO's components and what they can do. Along the way, Macdonald offers real-world code examples along with complete explanations of exactly what is occurring at each stage of the development process. This part also covers some of the key concepts upon which ADO programming is based, such as locking and transactions, connection pooling, marshalling, and Inter Process Communication, among others.
The second part of the book addresses the use of ADO in real-world development scenarios. Here, Macdonald demonstrates advanced user interface creation, including new ways to control the binding process. You'll also learn how to use Microsoft Transaction Server of COM+ applications to create transactional component-based systems.
