Description - LINQ For Dummies by John Paul Mueller

If you?ve asked yourself ?Why can?t I develop
database and XML queries in a language I already know??, then
Language INtegrated Query, or LINQ, is for you. LINQ For
Dummies introduces you to LINQ and the .NET Framework
technologies, so you can use LINQ to query any object, any data
set, any kind of XML, and SQL Server?no questions asked.
This plain-English guide gives you a thorough overview of LINQ,
from understanding the tasks it performs to making LINQ work with
both Visual Basic and Visual Studio 2005. It explains the four LINQ
providers in the .NET Framework, the easiest ways to go about
accessing data, and how to write more efficient applications with
less code using LINQ. There?s also clear guidance on
combining third-party providers with LINQ to create even more
powerful apps. With this single, comprehensive guide, you?ll
discover how to:

Use one query language with all Microsoft languages

Examine .NET language extensions and work with extension
methods, partial methods, lambda expressions, and query

LINQ to DataSet operators, SQL server operations, XML API, or
Active Directory

Deal with databases ? download and install the Northwind
database, generate Northwind entity classes, and create the
Northwind XML mapping file

Create the partial class example, the partial method example,
and the database modification example

Use objects with LINQ

Query databases in Visual Basic and C#

As an added bonus, you can visit the companion Web site for LINQ
examples in C# and Visual Basic. With LINQ For Dummies,
you?ll link up with LINQ in no time and see how you can query
almost anything!
