dotConnect Universal

dotConnect Universal offers universal access to data from different databases for the Microsoft .NET Framework. It supports most major database servers, including Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Access (Professional Edition only), Oracle, DB2, MySQL, PostgreSQL, InterBase, and Firebird. Other servers can be accessed through their ADO.NET, OLE DB and ODBC providers. The main feature of dotConnect Universal is an access to multiple database servers with the same code. With dotConnect Universal it is possible to avoid writing conditional code for different providers or using ADO.NET interfaces directly. dotConnect Universal implements full support of design-time development and integration with your IDE, which reduces development time.

dotConnect Universal doesn't implement a database specific access layer for all databases, it uses native ADO.NET providers and depends on their functionality. The Professional Edition of dotConnect Universal includes bundled data providers for Oracle, MySQL and PostgreSQL. For all other servers you need a native data provider.

dotConnect Universal provides functionality for connecting to a database, executing commands, and retrieving results. These results can be processed directly or placed in...
