Project Description

A C#.Net source-code class library of methods to facilitate the use of the latest version of VistaDB in your custom applications. Note that the VistaDB engine assembly is a licensed component and will not be distributed with this project. The project assumes the .Net framework version 3.5 or later. The goal is for interested developers utilizing the .Net version of VistaDB to share application-independent methods within a single library that can be linked into both non-commercial and commercial applications to facilitate the easy use of VistaDB.

If you develop software using VistaDB version 3.2 or later, please consider joining this project. The more developers the better!
