DataAccessHelper - DataAccessType not found RRS feed

  • Question

  • User740083940 posted

    Can someone help me understand what the relationship is between the web.config setting is for the "aspnet_staterkits_TimeTracker_DataAccessLayerType" is and what the dataAccessType as Type = Type.GetType(dataAccessStringType) is?

    I have changed that app setting to reflect my own project - RSM_DataAccessLayerType

    I have also changed my connectionStrings in the other web.config file to reflect a database in my SQL 2000 machine.

    Thank you very much...

    The "aspnet_staterkits_TimeTracker_DataAccessLayerType" configuration specifies what type of  DataLayer you will be using, TT comes with SQLDatalayer but you can extend it to AccessDatalayer should you ever want to use an access database in the future, or if you want to use a MySQL you can create your own MySQLDataLayer and change the configuration string to use that. The value is the fact that it allows the application to be expandable in regards to the data access method.
