Data Abstract for .NET comes with two samples that demonstrate using DA SQL to retrieve data from a schema. DA SQL is a technology introduced to Data Abstract that gives clients the full flexibility of SQL queries to describe their data needs. These SQL queries will be run against the middle tier rather than against the back-end database(s), using the table and field names that are defined in the schema rather than those defined in the back-end database.

Typically the samples are located in C:\Program Files (x86)\RemObjects Software\Data Abstract for .NET. Inside that folder you will find folders for each programming language that Data Abstract for .NET supports.

Sample 1: Console based program

The Console Sample is a non interactive program available in both C# and Silver that retrieves data and prints it to the console.

Sample 2: Desktop based program

The Desktop Sample is an interactive program available in C#, Oxygene, Silver and Visual Basic.
