Are you involved in The Design and development of data access code for .NET-based applications? Have you ever felt that you write the same data access code again and again? Have you wrapped data access code in helper functions that let you call a stored procedure in one line? If so, the Microsoft Data Access Application Block for .NET is for you.
The Data Access Application Block encapsulates performance and resource management best practices for accessing Microsoft SQL Server databases. It can easily be used as a building block in your own .NET-based application. If you use it, you will reduce the amount of custom code you need to create, test, and maintain.
Important Information: A newer version of this application block has been released as a part of the patterns & practices Enterprise Library. The new version includes updated functionality based on customer feedback, as well as improved extensibility, ease of use, and consistency and integration with other blocks in Enterprise Library. The application block you have requested is still available for download but is now considered as an archive release.
