Getting Started with a .NET Framework Data Provider Implementation

.NET Framework 1.1

When implementing a .NET Framework data provider, it is important that you define the following:

  • Which interfaces and classes you will implement.
  • What the naming convention for your classes will be.
  • Which constructors, methods, properties, and events you will implement.
  • What namespace you will use for your .NET Framework data provider.
  • Which DLL will contain your .NET Framework data provider.

This section provides information and suggestions for defining your .NET Framework data provider.
