1  ADO.NET Overview  ADO.NET Classes

2 ADO.NET Overview Looking Back  ODBC (Open Database Connectivity)  Interoperability to a wide range of database management systems (DBMS)  Widely accepted API  Uses SQL as data access language  DAO (Data Access Objects)  Programming interface for JET/ISAM databases  Uses automation (ActiveX, OLE automation)  RDO (Remote Data Objects)  Tighter coupling to ODBC  Geared more to client/server databases (vs. DAO)

3 ADO.NET Overview Looking Back  OLE DB  Broad access to data, relational and other  Built on COM  Not restricted to SQL for retrieving data  Can use ODBC drivers  Low-level (C++) interface  ADO (ActiveX Data Objects)  Simple component-based, object-oriented interface  Provides a programming model to OLE DB accessible outside of C++

4 ADO.NET Overview Looking Back ADO ODBC ProviderSimple ProviderNative Provider OLE DB Provider ODBC ODBC Driver Text File Database OLE DB Provider Mainframe OLE DB Your Application

5 ADO.NET Overview Looking Back  ADO was designed as a connected, tightly coupled model  Appropriate for client/server architectures  Primarily relational (not hierarchical like XML)  Object design is not well factored  Too many ways to do the same thing  Objects try to do too much  Not originally designed for a distributed, n-tier environment

6 ADO.NET Overview What Is ADO.NET?  ADO.NET is a collection of classes, interfaces, structures, and enumerated types that manage data access from relational data stores within the.NET Framework  These collections are organized into namespaces:  System.Data, System.Data.OleDb, System.Data.SqlClient, etc.  ADO.NET is an evolution from ADO.  Does not share the same object model, but shares many of the same paradigms and functionality!

7 ADO.NET Overview ADO.NET Goals  Well-factored design  Highly scaleable through a robust disconnected model  Rich XML support (hierarchical as well as relational)  Data access over HTTP  Maintain familiar ADO programming model  Keep ADO available via.NET COM interoperability

8 ADO.NET Overview Managed Providers  Merges ADO and OLEDB into one layer  Each provider contains a set of classes that implement common interfaces  Initial managed provider implementations:  ADO Managed Provider: provides access to any OLE DB data source  SQL Server Managed Provider: provides optimal performance when using SQL Server  Exchange Managed Provider: retrieve and update data in Microsoft Exchange

9 ADO.NET Overview Managed Providers SQL Managed Provider SQL Server Database ADO.NET Managed Provider ADO Managed Provider OLE DB Provider Database Your Application

10 ADO.NET Overview Data Access Styles  Connected: Forward-only, read-only  Application issues query then reads back results and processes them  “Firehose” cursor  DataReader object  Disconnected  Application issues query then retrieves and stores results for processing  Minimizes time connected to database  DataSet object

11 ADO.NET Overview Data Binding  Key component of Web Forms framework  Flexible and easy to use  Bind a control’s property to information in any type of data store  Provides control over how data moves back and forth  Simple controls for displaying a single value  Complex controls for displaying a data structure '/>

12 Agenda  Database Theory and History  Relational Database Concepts and Terminology  ADO.NET Overview  ADO.NET Classes

13 ADO.NET Classes IDbConnection Interface  Creates a unique session with a data source  Implemented by SqlDbConnection and OleDbConnection  Functionality  Open, close connections  Begin transactions  IDbTransaction provide Commit and Rollback methods  Used in conjunction with IDbCommand and IDataAdapter objects  Additional properties, methods and collections depend on the provider

14 ADO.NET Classes IDbCommand Interface  Represents a statement to be sent to a data source  Usually, but not necessarily SQL  Implemented by OleDbCommand and SqlCommand  Functionality  Define statement to execute  Execute statement  Pass and retrieve parameters  Create a prepared (compiled) version of command  ExecuteReader returns rows, ExecuteNonQuery doesn’t, ExecuteScalar returns single value  Additional properties, methods and collections depend on the provider

15 ADO.NET Classes IDataReader Interface  Forward-only, read-only (“fire hose”) access to a stream of data  Implemented by SqlDataReader and OleDbDataReader  Created via ExecuteReader method of IDbCommand  Operations on associated IDbConnection object disallowed until reader is closed

16 ADO.NET Classes System.Data.OleDb Namespace  Managed provider for use with OLEDB providers  SQLOLEDB (SQL Server) – use System.Data.SQL  MSDAORA (Oracle)  JOLT (Jet)  OLEDB for ODBC providers  OleDbConnection, OleDbCommand and OleDbDataReader classes  Classes for error handling  Classes for connection pooling

17 ADO.NET Classes DataReader Example string sConnString = “Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;” + “User ID=sa;Initial Catalog=Northwind;” + “Data Source=MYSERVER”; OleDbConnection conn = new OleDbConnection(sConnString); conn.Open(); string sQueryString = “SELECT CompanyName FROM Customers”; OleDbCommand myCommand = new OleDbCommand(sQueryString, conn); OleDbDataReader myReader = myCommand.ExecuteReader(); while (myReader.Read()) { Console.WriteLine(myReader.GetString(0)); } myReader.Close(); conn.Close();

18 ADO.NET Classes System.Data Namespace  Contains the core classes of the ADO.NET architecture  Disconnected DataSet is central  Supports all types of applications  Internet based  ASP.NET  XML  Windows forms based

19 ADO.NET Classes System.Data Namespace  Contains classes used by or derived from managed providers  IDbConnection, IDbCommand, IDbDataReader

20 ADO.NET Classes DataSet  A collection of tables  Has no knowledge of the source of the data  Keeps track of all relationships among tables  Rich programming model (has objects for tables, columns, relationships, and so on)  Remembers original and current state of data  Can dynamically modify data and metadata  Native serialization format is XML  Located in System.Data

21 ADO.NET Classes DataSet DataSet DataTable DataRelation DataRow DataColumn

22 ADO.NET Classes System.Data.SqlClient Namespace  Managed provider native to SQL Server  Built on TDS (Tabular Data Stream) for high performance in SQL Server  SqlConnection, SqlCommand and SqlDataReader classes  Classes for  Error handling  Connection pooling (implicitly enabled by default )  System.Data.SqlTypes provides classes for native SQL Server data types

23 ADO.NET Classes IDataAdapter Interface  Populates or sends updates to a DataSet  Implemented by OleDbDataAdapter and SqlDataAdapter  Not connection based  Represents an asynchronous approach  A superset of a command object  Contains four default command objects for Select, Insert, Update, and Delete

24 ADO.NET Classes DataSet Example string sConnString = “Persist Security Info=False;” + “User ID=sa;Initial Catalog=Northwind;” + “Data Source=MYSERVER”; SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(sConnString); conn.Open(); string sQueryString = “SELECT CompanyName FROM Customers”; SqlDataAdapter myDSAdapter = new SqlDataAdapter(); DataSet myDataSet = new DataSet(); myDSAdapter.SelectCommand = new SqlCommand(sQueryString, conn); myDSAdapter.Fill(myDataSet); conn.Close();

25 ADO.NET Classes DataTable  In-memory object representing one table  Columns  Rows  Schema defined by Columns collection  Data integrity provided through Constraint objects  Public events  Modifying/deleting rows  Modifying columns

26 ADO.NET Classes DataColumn  Fundamental building block of a DataTable schema (contained in Columns collection)  Defines what type of data may be entered (via DataType property)  Other important properties include AllowNull, Unique, and ReadOnly  Can contain Constraints (a collection on DataTable )  Can contain Relations (collection on DataSet )

27 ADO.NET Classes DataRow  Represents data in a DataTable (contained in Rows collection)  Conforms to schema defined by DataColumns  Properties for determining row state (e.g., new, changed, deleted, etc.)  All additions/modifications “committed” with AcceptChanges method of DataTable

28 ADO.NET Classes DataRelation  Relates two DataTables via DataColumns  DataType value of both DataColumns must be identical  Updates can be cascaded to child DataTables  Modifications that invalidate the relation are disallowed

29 ADO.NET Classes Creating a DataSet in Code  Create DataSet  Define tables DataSet dataset = new DataSet(); dataset.DataSetName = “BookAuthors”; DataTable authors = new DataTable(“Author”); DataTable books = new DataTable(“Book”);

30 ADO.NET Classes Creating a DataSet in Code  Define columns  Define keys DataColumn id = authors.Columns.Add("ID", typeof(Int32)); id.AutoIncrement = true; authors.PrimaryKey = new DataColumn[] {id}; DataColumn name = new authors.Columns.Add("Name",typeof(String)); DataColumn isbn = books.Columns.Add("ISBN", typeof(String)); books.PrimaryKey = new DataColumn[] {isbn}; DataColumn title = books.Columns.Add("Title", typeof(String)); DataColumn authid = books.Columns.Add(“AuthID”,typeof(Int32)); DataColumn[] foreignkey = new DataColumn[] {authid};

31 ADO.NET Classes Creating a DataSet in Code  Add the tables to the DataSet dataset.Tables.Add (authors); dataset.Tables.Add (books);

32 ADO.NET Classes Creating a DataSet in Code  Add data and save the DataSet DataRow shkspr = authors.NewRow(); shkspr["Name"] = "William Shakespeare"; authors.Rows.Add(shkspr); DataRelation bookauth = new DataRelation("BookAuthors", authors.PrimaryKey, foreignkey); dataset.Relations.Add (bookauth); DataRow row = books.NewRow(); row["AuthID"] = shkspr["ID"]; row["ISBN"] = "1000-XYZ"; row["Title"] = "MacBeth"; books.Rows.Add(row); dataset.AcceptChanges();

33 ADO.NET Classes Typed DataSet s  Typed DataSet  Derived from base DataSet class  Uses XML schema to generate new class  Tables, columns, etc. compiled into new class  Untyped DataSet No built-in schema Tables, columns, etc. exposed only as collections ds.Customers.FirstName ds.Tables[“Customers”].Rows[0][“FirstName”]

34 ADO.NET Classes Errors and Exceptions  Error class  Contains information on an error or warning returned by data source  Created and managed by Errors class  Errors class  Contains all errors generated by an adapter  Created by Exception class  Exception class  Created whenever an unhandled error occurs  Always contains at least one Error instance

35 ADO.NET Classes Errors and Exceptions Example try { DataTable myTable = new DataTable(); myTable.Columns.Add(“myCol”); //whoops! } catch (DataException myException) { Console.WriteLine ("Message: " + myException.Message + "\n" + "Source: " + myException.Source + "\n" + “Stack Trace: " + myException.StackTrace + "\n"); }

39 Appendix ADO vs. ADO.NET  ADO is a slower automation layer over OLE DB for use in Visual Basic, etc.  ADO.NET provides direct, fast access to data from any language  ADO.NET essentially has merged OLE DB and ADO into a single layer

40 Appendix ADO vs. ADO.NET FeatureADOADO.NET Memory-resident Data Representation Uses RecordSet, which can contain one table Uses DataSet, which can contain one or more tables represented by DataTables Relationship Between Multiple Tables Require the JOIN querySupports the DataRelation object Data VisitationScans RecordSet rows sequentially Uses a navigation paradigm for non- sequential access Disconnected AccessProvided by RecordSet but typically supports connected access Communicates with standardized calls to the DataAdapter

41 Appendix ADO vs. ADO.NET FeatureADOADO.NET ProgrammabilityUses Connection object to transmit commands Uses strongly typed programming characteristics of XML Sharing Disconnected Data Between Tiers or Components Uses COM marshalling to transmit disconnected Recordset Transmits a DataSet with an XML file Transmitting Data Through Firewalls Problematic because firewalls are typically configured to prevent system-level requests Supported, DataSet object use XML, which can pass through firewalls ScalabilityDatabase locks and active database connections for long durations Disconnected access to database data without retaining database locks
