This book is intended for experienced VB programmers who are upgrading from VB6 or VS 2002/2003 to VB 2005. Basic familiarity with the VS 2005 integrated development environment (IDE) is assumed. However, no prior VB6, VBA, or VBScript database programming experience is necessary, except for Chapter 1, iMigrating from ADO to ADO.NET.î Some experience with writing Micro$oft Transact-SQL (T-SQL) statements and authoring simple stored procedures is expected. Familiarity with XML1.0 and XMLschemas will aid your understanding of DataSets and SQLServer 2005's new xml datatype. Some experience with writing XPath 1.0 expressions will be helpful to get the most benefit from Chapter 12, iExploring the xml Datatype.î
One-on-One Expert Visual Basic 2005 Database Programming concentrates on programming the .NET Framework 2.0's System.Data namespace, which implements ADO.NET 2.0 and related namespaces, such as System.Transactions and System.Xml. The book isn't a new user's guide to the .NET Framework, VS 2005, VBX, or VB 2005; it's devoted entirely to data-related topics.
This book is divided into four parts of three chapters each. Most chapters build on the knowledge you've gained from preceding chapters. Thus, it's recommended that you work your way through the chapters sequentially. Following is a brief description of the parts and their chapters' contents.
