The rich set of comprehensive examples included in the Data Access Samples Kit provides real-life solutions to everyday problems, for example, using Data Access in N-tier scenarios. The samples are grouped by technology (ASP.NET, Silverlight, WPF, WCF, N-Tier, etc.) and can be filtered by programming language (C# or VB.NET) and complexity (levels 100-400). Detailed information about the sample, including goals and requirements, is also included.
The samples can be run with their default settings directly from the Data Access Samples Kit. The browser will automatically check whether the needed database is installed (and will give the option to install it if it is not), will update the references and connection strings of the example, compile it, run any necessary services and start the application. All of this in a single click. The samples can also be opened in Visual Studio for further review and adjustments. Finally, each sample can be reset to its original settings.
