VB.net Standard edition and database connections
Posted on 2004-11-29
Hi, I have a pretty simple question.
I'm thinking about getting VB.net 2003 Standard edition (100 bucks or so), but it isn't clear to me what limitations this software has w/respect to database connectivity.
Will the standard edition allow me to connect to other databases (besides sqlserver) like Oracle & Mysql?
I've read different/contradictory things about this and microsoft itself does its best to muddy/avoid the issue.
What seems clear is that databases cannot be accessed remotely using vb.net 2003 standard, but it isn't clear if I have Oracle running as a localhost whether I'll be able to connect.
