I've published an article on a french site named DotNetGuru. This site is dedicated to technical articles mainly about architecture in .NET (often with comparisons with J2EE).
The subject of my article is Generic data access with ADO.NET and the Data Access Application Block. In this article I show:
- how to compensate the lack of genericity in ADO.NET by going beyond the interfaces provided by ADO.NET and introducing the Provider and DataSource classes.
- the generic DBHelper class I created from the DAAB's SqlHelper class.
Warning: this article is in french. Si quelqu'un souhaite le traduire...
Source code which shouldn't need translation (C#) is included.
