Learning ASP.NET Providers

Filed under: .NET, ASP.NET — ajlopez @ 10:20 am

These days, I’m preparing examples in ASP.NET 2.0, to show the new features of this platform and technology, and begin to use that features on my own projects. One of these new features is the existence of providers. Now, you can interact with defined providers for membership, roles, and profiles. The ASP.NET 2.0 platform has out-of-the-box providers, based on storing the information at MS SQL Server. If you want to know how to use these providers, what are they doing, and ways to extend or replace their functionality, then, you can review the following resources:

You must begin with

Provider Toolkit

with resources about the Provider pattern, now used at ASP.NET 2.0. You’ll found that you can use the providers in ASP.NET 1.x, too.
