It served to provide another layer of abstraction between the application and data access, making the developer’s task simpler. 0, which supported direct communication with Microsoft Access databases without using ODBC. Figure 1-2 shows this relationship. 0 was expanded to support OLE-DB connections and the advantages that come along with it. It also provided a much more robust set of functionality for accessing ODBC data stores through the JET engine. 0 and the 32-bit OS introduced with Windows 95.

Using Pascal Case for your tables negates the need for underscores in table names, and spaces are only supported by some database servers, so they should be avoided at all costs. Observing these rules will enable you to easily move your entire database schema among many different relational database management servers (just in case you ever get bored). The following few sections will walk you through naming conventions for every part of a table’s structure and its associated objects. Just to clarify what we’re talking about, here’s the CREATE script for a table in SQL Server: CREATE TABLE [Customers] ( [CustomerId] [int] IDENTITY (1, 1) NOT FOR REPLICATION NOT NULL , [CustomerName] [nvarchar] (50) COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS NULL , [CustomerAddress] [nvarchar] (50) COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS NULL CONSTRAINT [PK_CustomersFirstForm] PRIMARY KEY CLUSTERED ( [CustomerId] ) ON [PRIMARY] ) ON [PRIMARY] GO Columns When naming the columns in your tables, keep in mind that the columns already belong to a table, so it is not necessary to include the table name within the column names.

This standard practice of leaving the connection open resulted in heavier loads placed on the database server. The developers who did choose to close the connection immediately after retrieving the data faced another problem: having to continually create and destroy connections in each method that needed to access data. NET offers; and as a result, many best practice articles were published advising users to leave a single connection object open and forward it on to all the methods that needed to access data.
