Rob Conery blogs about an interesting lightweight data access he’s writing for WebMatrix that’s focused on simplicity and driving .NET 4 dynamic support for all it’s worth.
Massive is a “wrapper” for your DB tables and uses System.Dynamic extensively. If you try to use this with C# 3.5 or below, it will explode and you will be sad. Me too honestly – I like how this doesn’t require any DLLs other than what’s in the GAC. Yippee.
- Get a Database. Northwind will work nicely. Add a connection to your database in your web.config (or app.config). Don’t forget the providerName! If you don’t know what that is – just add providerName = ‘System.Data.SqlClient’ right after the whole connectionString stuff.
- Create a class that wraps a table. You can call it whatever you like, but if you want to be cool just name it the same as your table.
- Query away and have fun
Hope this will helps !!!
