Default Any docs on Ado.Net Provider?

Before placing order, is there any docs on this product? How to use it
with WebMatrix?

Ben, I'm at the moment working on documentation. It should be available within
a few days from now.

Gold bless you. Just got a call from client to tell him the status of
being able to read/write data from ASP.Net to nxDB. I hope soon I can
have an answer for him.

I did check the Webmatrix Forum for third party providers, but couldn't
find any info.

Thanks Hannes!

There are none. WebMatrix uses undocumented classes to access it. NexusDB is
the only database you can use directly at the moment apart from the MS
supported ones.

Wow, that's impressive and great news. I'm hoping we can introduce nxDB
into ASP.Net market!

Hannes, I just had a meeting with a new client on Friday afternoon and I
want to purchase a new copy of nxDB and a copy of the ADO.Net provider
for their new development. This will depend on how well the ADO.Net
provider works.

Here is the situation and please tell me if this is possible by using
ADO.Net provider.
I have to develop a complete business solution as a a Windows
application using D5 and nxDB. However 80% of their orders will be
coming from internet. So, Either myself or another company will write an
ASP.Net order entry app that will be *HOSTED REMOTELY* on some web
hosting system. This ASP app will use nxDB ADO.Net provider to connect
to my app (at all time via a fraction T1 line) to do it's order entry
system. Do you see any problems/issues for your ADO provider to get/send
data via phone line in a speedy fashion?

Please advise all your input before approaching this solution to this
client.

Thanks!

A T1 line and a phone line are two very different beasts. Exactly how will
each of them be used? Do you know the transfer rates you are likely to get?

Eivind, as always, you have sharp eyes. I apologize for mixing those two
terms together. Let me re-phrase my last part of the question to clarify
your point.

"Do you see any problems/issues for your ADO provider to
get/send data via fraction T1 line in a speedy fashion?"

So, if these people have a fraction T1 line connected to internet, and
the ADO.net provider needs to get/send a batch of records from nx
server, will there be reasonable speed?

Could you guys give it test shot by the end of the week before my next
meeting to close the contract?

Thank you in advance!

it is surely possible via T1 and phone line. Of course the speed will be quite
different. Using compression and batch reads is a must for the phone line, bot
not an issue for the ADO provider, as they are already built in. Just set the
"Compression" parameter to 9 for highest compression and BlockReadSize to
somewhere around 512000.

To be honest with you though: making the order database server available from
the internet directly doesn't seem to be a good idea to me. i would rather
surface the needed functions via an ISAPI (or similar) that accesses an
internal server. Opening access to the server from the internet is a huge
security hole that just waits to be exploited. In other words you make it
possible for every one to read and write to your database, where you keep
products, prices, customer information and maybe even payment data like credit
cards. I strongly suggest to rethink your approach, although we might sell this
ADO provider less.
