Quick Look: OLE DB Consumer Templates, A Programmer's Guide

If you program with OLE DB this is a great reference.

OLE DB is one of the main data access technologies available to programmers today. If you use OLE DB you have undoubtedly noticed a lack of resource material to support your efforts. Peirre Nallet's book comes to your rescue. The book contains numerous examples that demonstrate the use of OLE DB consumer templates and extensions. He covers the development of such fundamental database elements as sessions, tables, data exchange, BLOBs, transactions, indexes, scheme, and OLAP. Pierre has structured the book in an easy to follow format which makes finding specific topics quick. He has even included an overview of Windows DNA, COM and Universal Database Access for readers who are less knowledgeable of the Windows development world.

Pro: Lots of examples and code samples in text
Con: No CD-ROM included with sample code
Verdict: If you program with OLE DB this is a great reference

I was disappointed that the book did not contain a CD-ROM with code samples; this would make using them in your own projects much easier. All in all I feel this book is an excellent addition to any database developer's library.
