Chapter 5. Files, Databases, and XML


.NET 1.0 revolutionized Visual Basic data access with a whole new object model for interacting with files, connecting to databases, and manipulating XML. In .NET 2.0, the revolution continues with a slew of minor improvements, some new features, and a tool for generating data access code automatically, all designed to make life better for the VB programmer.


Tip: What you won't learn about in this chapter are the new .NET Framework features designed for SQL Server 2005. These include using .NET code to program user-defined data types and stored procedures, SQL Server 2005 notifications, and multiple active recordsets (MARS). For more information about these SQL Server 2005 features, please pay a visit to the MSDN SQL Server 2005 Developer Center at http://msdn.microsoft.com/SQL/2005.
