LINQ to SQL allows querying a relational structure by converting the LINQ query into a native SQL query. This means… that the queries that you write in code generates appropriate queries to access theactual database, AUTOMATICALLY! There are several concepts that you will come to know in this module
C # programmers at any level need to learn about LINQ (Language-Integrated Query),
Microsoft’s breakthrough technology for simplifying and unifying data access from any data
source. With LINQ you can write more elegant and flexible code, not just to access databases
and files but also to manipulate data structures and XML.
LINQ for Visual C# 2008 is a short guide to the major features of LINQ. It thoroughly covers
LINQ to Objects, LINQ to SQL, LINQ to DataSet, and LINQ to XML. For instance, you’ll
In the previous chapter, I introduced you to LINQ. I provided some examples to whet your appetite,
and shared some premature tips. You may be perplexed though by some of the syntax. If so, it is
probably because the C# you witnessed in that chapter is new and improved. The reason for the C#
language upgrade is that C# 2.0 just didn’t have the muscle to pull off LINQ. In this chapter, I introduce
you to the more powerful C# 3.0.
LINQ is the project name for a set of extensions to the .NET Framework that provide a generic approach to querying data from different data sources. LINQ will premier in Visual Studio 2008, and will become the next must–have skill for .NET developers. For more information about LINQ, you can check out the author’s portal at
Language-Integrated Query (LINQ) is a set of features introduced in Visual Studio 2008 that extends powerful query capabilities to the language syntax of C# and Visual Basic. LINQ introduces standard, easily-learned patterns for querying and updating data, and the technology can be extended to support potentially any kind of data store. Visual Studio includes LINQ provider assemblies that enable the use of LINQ with .NET Framework collections, SQL Server databases, ADO.NET Datasets, and XML documents.
