DBISAM ADO.Net Provider is a .Net assembly, implementing
classes and components, required by ADO.Net architecture to
access DBISAM Database Server. It communicates with DBISAM
Database Server using TCP/IP protocol. It is completely
programmed in C# language, which makes it fully managed.

DBISAM ADO.Net Provider does not require any unmanaged dlls,
ODBC drivers or COM components! It is extremely small (only
100Kb!), easy to distribute and requires no configuration!
It can even be built directly into your application!

As an example, of how simple it is to access DBISAM Database
Server from .Net, see SQL Console utility available for free
download at our web site:
