One of the big new features that have been advertised with Visual Studio 2008 is this thing called Multi-Targeting. This lets you write code for .NET 2.0 (or 3.0) even though 2008 is written to work with .NET 3.5. So, the theory is, you can still work on existing projects targeted for .NET 2.0. Does this work? Watch the video to find out.

Last week, we took a look at creating a DAL that would allow us to swap out database providers without having to rewrite a lot of our code. The only problem with the code I showed you is that you still have to change code whenever you swap databases. This is not very flexible.
Last Thursday, we looked at how to replace the TableAdapter with our own TableAdapter as a way or eliminating our dependence on Microsoft SQL. The problem with this implementation is that every time you want to switch databases, you’ll need to switch what TableAdapter the code is using.
As I’ve mentioned in other post, while I think LINQ has it’s uses, I still favor the use of the ObjectDataSource control in conjunction with DataSets and a 3-tiered architecture. Since any future demos I do will probably involve this architecture, I thought it would be useful to do a short demo that demonstrates how to create a 3-Tiered architecture in ASP.NET.
