Microsoft Visual Basic Design Patterns by William Stamatakis (VB6)

I believe the book above (published many years ago) utilizes Factory and Singelton design patterns to create database connections. Anyone has the code that was on CD? Or similar code for creating database Connection objects in .NET?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Database connections in .Net are now done with ADO.Net. See here for an overview -> http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/h43ks021.aspx

I do not have the code for that book, but this sample will give you an idea...
Public Class DatabaseConnection

Private Shared _DatabaseConnection as SQLConnection

Private Sub New()

End Sub 

Public Function Initialized() as SQLConnection

If _DatabaseConnection is nothing then

_DatabaseConnection = new SQLConnection("YourConnectionStringHere")

End If

Return _DatabaseConnection
End Sub 

End Class

Open in new window

Here is the code without any error,

I also replace the line
Public Function Initialized() as SQLConnection

to

Public Shared Function Initialized() as SQLConnection

Try it...

Public Class DatabaseConnection

Private Shared _DatabaseConnection as SQLConnection

Private Sub New()

End Sub 

Public Shared Function Initialized() as SQLConnection

If _DatabaseConnection is nothing then

_DatabaseConnection = new SQLConnection("YourConnectionStringHere")

End If

Return _DatabaseConnection
End Function 

End Class

Open in new window
