ADO. NET Express is an add-in for Visual Studio 2003 that generates class methods for calling stored procedures and executing common types of SQL statements.
It supports C#/VB and SQL Server/Oracle. ADO. NET Express looks similar to Server Explorer. You can add database connections and browse schema objects such as tables and stored procedures.
You can right click on a schema object to generate ADO. NET code for this object. For example, you can right-click on a stored procedure and generate a C# method that executes the stored procedure and returns a DataReader.
ADO. NET Express is especially useful for ASP. NET and middleware developers who write a lot of data access code and would like to save time to do more creative tasks.
Generated code is easy to understand and modify. ADO. NET Express has a variety of options for generating code that cover most of the common data access scenarios.
