In the past, working with data has required learning a number of
different API sets for each kind of data you needed to access. Relational data
requires ADO. XML uses Xpath, XQuery and the XML Dom. Objects require you to
write your own manipulation code. In this video, Jim Wooley (MVP in VB)
continues to look at the Language INtegrated Query (LINQ) project and
demonstrates how to leverage it to use a single API to work against objects or
relational data. In it, we continue exploring the ThinqLinq web site by
demonstrating joining in-memory object structures from System.IO with relational
data from SQL Server. We also look at updating data back to the database using
ASP.Net with Visual Studio code name "Orcas".
This video is part 2 of 3. The code samples and slides are available at http://devauthority.com/files/13/jwooley/entry38500.aspx. Jim can be contacted via his web site at http://devauthority.com/blogs/jwooley or at the site for his upcoming LINQ book at http://LinqInAction.net.
