Hi Just wondered if anyone had an opinion on how I should created a new Point Of Sale system.
I currently have one in access with sql back end. I am thinking of windows forms(c#) with Sql. I have thought about wpf but have found it difficult to work with, probably just because I don't know what I am doing.
I would hope this program would still be running in 10 years and not obsolete.
Will wpf replace windows forms?
I would probably use datasets and datareaders, is this old?
Should I use LINQ or entity framework?(not really familiar with either)
Finally would a stored procedure run faster than a LINQ query selecting 100,000 records for example.
I know this is a pretty open question but just looking for a few pointers or insights.
Lowfatspread if I had written it in .net 2003 I would constantly upgarded it as each visual studio came out so now I would be using 2010 so hardly ancient.
What I am really wondering is if windows form will still be around or if wpf is the direction everything is heading.
You both seem in favour with stored procedures which is good for me anyway.
