Microsoft Visual Studio 'Whidbey' Details Emerge

Microsoft Visual Studio 'Whidbey' Details Emerge "The Whidbey release of VB brings back the ability to create database front ends by simply dropping a few controls onto a form and specifying the database to be used. As part of its .NET platform, Microsoft introduced a new database API called ADO.NET, and although ADO.NET had many benefits over its predecessor, such as better offline use, it introduced additional complexity—VB developers had to write code to connect user interface elements to a database. With the upcoming release of VB.NET, developers can build database front ends in the old way, but still take advantage of the architectural improvements of ADO.NET."
