Using Enterprise Library with MySQL RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,


    Does anybody here has got information about using Microsoft Enterprise library with MySQL?


    Can a C#.net based web application use Enterprise library with MySQL?


    If it's possible do we need to modify the library for MySQL or it fully supports MySQL.


    Kindly share your experiences and thoughts on this topic.


    I have done some research and found that Ent. Library doesn't fully support MySQL.


    Please correct me if you know something in this area.

  • If you application is a usual database application (CRUD operations) and you stick to ANSI standards for CRUD SQL, it should not matter whether it is mySQL or SQLServer or Oracle.  And for Data objects use system.data.oledb namespace.


    Can you be specific about where or what info you found about entlib doesnt fully support mysql.


    We have an app that uses mysql and sql server (dont ask me why!!!) but we are using simple CRUD operations, so not an issue.
