SQL Anywhere .NET support

ADO.NET is the latest data access API from Microsoft in the line of ODBC, OLE DB, and ADO. It is the preferred data access component for the Microsoft .NET Framework and allows you to access relational database systems.

The SQL Anywhere .NET Data Provider implements the iAnywhere.Data.SQLAnywhere namespace and allows you to write programs in any of the .NET supported languages, such as C# and Visual Basic .NET, and access data from SQL Anywhere databases.

For general information about .NET data access, see the Microsoft [external link] .NET Data Access Architecture Guide.

ADO.NET applications

You can develop Internet and intranet applications using object-oriented languages, and then connect these applications to SQL Anywhere using the ADO.NET data provider.

Combine this provider with built-in XML and web services features, .NET scripting capability for MobiLink synchronization, and an UltraLite .NET component for development of handheld database applications, and SQL Anywhere can integrate with the .NET Framework.
