ADO.NET is a set of managed classes that provide consistent access to data sources such as Adaptive Server® Enterprise, Oracle, and Microsoft SQL Server, as well as to data sources exposed through OLE DB and XML. The PowerBuilder database interface for ADO.NET supports the .NET namespace System.Data.OleDb. The interface consists of a driver (pbado100.dll) and a server (pbdata100.dll). Both DLLs must be deployed with an application that connects to a database using ADO.NET.
You can create a profile for the ADO.NET driver in the Database Profiles dialog box or the Database painter using the System.Data.OleDb namespace. You can connect to Microsoft SQL Server, Adaptive Server, Oracle, Informix, and Access databases using their own OLE DB drivers.
