This chapter describes the API for the UltraLite .NET Data Provider for .NET Framework 2.0 and .NET Compact Framework 2.0.
UltraLite.NET extensions that are not available in the SQL Anywhere Data Provider for ADO.NET are denoted in this API reference with "UL Ext.:".
To use the UltraLite Engine runtime of UltraLite.NET, set RuntimeType property to the appropriate value prior to using any other UltraLite.NET API.
Applications must open a connection to perform operations on a database. Connections are opened using the ULConnection class.
The iAnywhere.Data.UltraLite assembly uses a satellite resource assembly called iAnywhere.Data.UltraLite.resources. The main assembly searches for this resource assembly by culture, using the following order: CultureInfo.CurrentUICulture, then CultureInfo.CurrentCulture, and finally culture "EN".
Many of the properties and methods in this chapter are very similar to the .NET Framework Data Provider for OLE DB (System.Data.OleDb). You can find more information and examples in the Microsoft .NET Framework documentation.
