Making Connections

Abstract

Before you can do anything useful with a database, you need to establish a session with the database server. You do this with an object called a connection, which is an instance of a class that implements the System.Data.IDbConnection interface for a specific data provider. In this chapter, you’ll use various data providers to establish connections and look at problems that may arise and how to solve them.
