Microsoft has released the Enterprise Library for .NET Framework 2.0 this month !!!
Within just two months from the release of .NET Framework 2.0, the release of Enterprise Library for the same comes as a pleasant surprise, thanks to the hard work put by the Team.
With just a quick glance, I could note that the following features have been added newly:
1. In the DAAB (Data Access Application Block), you can dynamically create Connection strings and use them
2. The DAAB includes Database-derived classes for Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle.
3. There is something called the GenericDatabase class in DAAB that can be used to access OLE-DB and ODBC databases.
4. The Configuration Application Block has been removed and its now based on System.Configuration namespace.
