Programming Microsoft LINQ in Microsoft .NET Framework 4

Request Review copy

Sebastopol, CA—With LINQ, you can query data from a variety of sources—including databases, objects, and XML files—directly from Microsoft Visual Basic® or C#. Guided by data-access experts who've worked in depth with LINQ and the Microsoft development teams, Programming Microsoft LINQ in Microsoft .NET Framework 4 (Microsoft Press, $49.99 USD) will show you how .NET Framework 4 implements LINQ, and how to exploit it. Clear examples show you how to deliver your own data-access solutions faster and with leaner code.

Discover how to:

  • Use LINQ to query databases, object collections, arrays, XML, Microsoft Excel® files, and other sources
  • Apply LINQ best practices to build data-enabled .NET applications and services
  • Manipulate data in a relational database with ADO.NET Entity Framework or LINQ to SQL
  • Read, write, and manage XML content more efficiently with LINQ to XML
  • Extend LINQ to support additional data sources by creating custom operators and providers
  • Examine other implementations, such as LINQ to SharePoint®
  • Use LINQ within the data, business, and service layers of a distributed application
  • Get code samples on the Web
