Programming Microsoft® LINQ

by Marco Russo Paolo Pialorsi

Get comprehensive guidance for using the Microsoft Language Integrated Query (LINQ) Project--with in-depth insights from two experienced developers. Data-rich applications can be difficult to create because of the tremendous differences between query languages used to access data and the programming languages commonly used to write applications. This practical guide covers the intricacies of LINQ, a set of extensions to the Visual C# and Visual Basic programming languages. Instead of traversing different language syntaxes required for accessing data from relational and hierarchical data sources, developers will learn how to write queries natively in Visual C# or Visual Basic--helping reduce complexity and boost productivity. Written by two experienced developers with strong ties to the developer teams at Microsoft, this book describes the LINQ architecture and classes, details the new language features in both Visual C# and Visual Basic, and provides code samples in both languages.

Programming Microsoft® LINQ in Microsoft .NET Framework 4

Guided by data-access experts who've worked in depth with LINQ and the Microsoft development teams, you'll learn how .NET Framework 4 implements LINQ, and how to exploit it. Clear examples show you how to deliver your own data-access solutions faster and with leaner code. Discover how to: Use LINQ to query databases, object collections, arrays, XML, Microsoft Excel® files, and other sources Apply LINQ best practices to build data-enabled .NET applications and services Manipulate data in a relational database with ADO.NET Entity Framework or LINQ to SQL Read, write, and manage XML content more efficiently with LINQ to XML Extend LINQ to support additional data sources by creating custom operators and providers Examine other implementations, such as LINQ to SharePoint® Use LINQ within the data, business, and service layers of a distributed application Get code samples on the Web
