This book is a comprehensive introduction to building websites that use multiple data sources--not just databases. You’ll learn how to build a relational database, use SQL or XML to communicate with it, and take full advantage of Microsoft’s new LINQ (Language Integrated Query).</p>
You’ll also learn about the latest ADO.NET and ASP.NET features in .NET 3.5. The author devotes plenty of space to mission-critical issues such as design, transactions, concurrency, exception handling, and optimization. He explains in detail how to work with SQL Server Express, Oracle Express, and MySQL Community Server, and highlights the differences between them.</p>
This comprehensive resource is packed with information about .NET 3.5 improvements and techniques for building database-driven websites. Every new idea is illustrated by practical code examples, with a real-world case study to tie everything together and bring it into focus.</p>
