Code Architects is more and more involved in the VB6-to-.NET migration business, and we are hiring developers to work at our HQs in Santeramo in Colle, Italy.

Positions are open both for the tech support team and for the migration services team. The ideal candidate must be an experienced VB6 and .NET developer, and be able to read/write English.

You can find more details here (in Italian). You can send your resume through Monster or directlyto us as an attachment in an email sent to info -at- codearchitects.com  (where of course "at" stands for "@"...just to reduce spamming).



ADOLibrary is in semi-public beta!

clock August 10, 2010 13:03

After many months of internal beta testing, last week we released our revolutionary ADOLibrary to selected customers.

As you may remember from a previous post, Code Architects' ADOLibrary offers effortless migration from ADODB to ADO.NET. Basically, ADOLibrary is a set of ADO.NET-based classes that expose an ADODB-like object model. For example, the ADOConnection object has the same programming interface as ADODB.Connection and behaves much like the same; the ADORecordset class works like the ADODB.Recordset class, and so on. ADOLibrary currently supports all ADODB classes, with the only exception of the Record class. It is important to emphasize that ADOLibrary is fully ADO.NET and has no dependency on ADODB or other COM technologies.

ADOLibrary currently supports the vast majority of ADODB features, including forwardonly-readonly rowsets, optimistic batch updates, parameterized commands and stored procedures, the Filter property for client-side recordsets. If accessing Microosft SQL Server, keysets and dynamic server-side cursors are also supported. ADOLibrary event supports most ADODB dynamic properties, such as Update Criteria and Unique Table.

Actually, it's easier to list what ADOLibrary does *not*currently support, namely hierarchical recordset, the Record object, and multiple, semicolon-separated commands in the Execute method (they are fine in the Recordset.Open method, though).

The whole ADOLibrary documentation is already available online. This is a draft version and lacks some code samples, but it is already enough exhaustive to be usable.
