The software utility provides direct access to SQL Server using managed code. It can function in all types of models, whether they’re connected or disconnected, and it also features an advanced SqlDataTable component for table data access.
Moreover, dotConnect for SQL Server Standard has auxiliary modules and wizards to help build and compile SQL scripts as well as to send batches of packets with information. It can be easily deployed and offers support for ASP.NET Provider Model along with additional data binding features. Cross-form components cooperation is ensured too, together with the possibility to monitor the query execution.
The most recent versions of SQL Server are supported by this piece of software, in addition to all SQL Server data types. Sample files and help documentation are included in the setup pack. It’s also possible to prevent the program from installing assemblies in the GAC. .NET Framework is required to be able to get this tool up and running, which shouldn’t be a problem since it’s built into newer Windows versions.
