Building Database Applications with ADONET

  1. NET presents a coherent programming model for exposing data access within the .NET Framework. In addition to supporting MS SQL, Oracle, and OLE DB connection components within the . NET Framework, Delphi 8 for .NET includes Borland Data Providers for .NET (BDP.NET). BDP.NET supports access to MS SQL, Oracle, DB2, and Interbase. BDP.NET component designers ease the generation and configuration of BDP.NET components. This section overviews how to use Delphi 8 for . NET with the ADO.NET architecture and how to build a simple ADO.NET project.
  2. NET Overview
  3. NET is the .NET programming environment for building database applications based on native database formats or XML data. ADO.NET is designed as a back-end data store for all .NET programming models, including Web Forms, Web Services, and Windows Forms. Use ADO.NET to manage data in the .NET Framework.

Borland provides tools to simplify rapid ADO.NET development using Borland Data Providers for .NET (BDP.NET). If you are familiar with rapid application development (RAD) and object oriented programming (OOP) using properties, methods, and events, you will find the ADO.NET model for building applications familiar. If you are a traditional database programmer, ADO.NET provides familiar concepts, such as tables, rows, and columns with relational navigation. XML developers will appreciate navigating the same data with nodes, parents, siblings, and children.

The following topic provides the conceptual background to understand 1) the major components of the ADO.NET architecture, 2) how ADO.NET integrates with other programming models in the .NET Framework, and 3) key Delphi 8 for .NET functionality.

This section introduces:

  • ADO.NET architecture.
  • ADO.NET user interfaces.
  • TADONETConnector object.
  • BDP.NET namespace.
  • ADO.NET application deployment.
