Development (Windows Azure SQL Database)

Microsoft Windows Azure SQL Database is the relational database service on the Windows Azure platform. There are few differences between developing for Microsoft Windows Azure SQL Database and SQL Server. When you write applications for Windows Azure SQL Database, you can use one of the .NET Framework programming languages, which come with Visual Studio 2008 or later: Microsoft Visual Basic, Microsoft Visual C#, or Microsoft Visual C++. You can also use the ADO.NET data provider for SQL Server, the SQL Server 2008 Native Client ODBC driver, and the SQL Server 2008 Driver for PHP version 1.1. In addition, Windows Azure SQL Database allows you to use a subset of the Transact-SQL query language to query a database and to insert, update, and delete data in tables in a database.

This section contains topics that help you develop applications on Windows Azure SQL Database.
