What is the NexusDB ADO.Net Provider?

The NexusDB ADO.Net Provider is a full implementation of the MS ADO.Net Provider interfaces. It allows full ADO.NET compatible access to a NexusDB database by accessing a remote server via the optimized NexusDB transports. The driver is shipped in binary form only.

The provider works with any .Net language (Delphi Prism, VB.net, C#, ASP.Net...) at run time and is fully integrated into Visual Studio 2005/2008. This allows rapid application development using NexusDB without writing a single line of code. Please check the .NET Guide for examples and tips & tricks.

Plase note that current builds (from 104 onwards) of the ADO Provider can connect V3.05 or higher servers only. Unsupported legacy builds to connect to older servers are available on request.

How to report issues or ask questions

First please review our .NET Guide for how to general help on the usage of ADO.NET data providers. If you still have questions, please use the nexusdb.public.support.dotNetProvider newsgroup at news://news.nexusdb.com, the #NexusDBSupport channel on our IRC server (irc.nexusdb.com) or at the our web forums.


The driver/connector licensing has two parts:

(1) As a user, the driver/connector license allows you to install the Connector on as many machines / seats as necessary provided these machines are operated within the same company or organisation.

(2) If you own an additional NexusDB Server Distribution License (which is implicitly included in the NexusDB Developer SRC, NexusDB Developer DCU and NexusDB AWE Server products, but also available as standalone license) you can royalty-free redistribute the driver/onnector as part of one or more of your products that make explicit use of the Connector. Distribution of the driver/connector on its own is not allowed.

For exact licensing terms please review the attached license document.
