SQL Server Integration Services, using its designer interface, or BIDS, has made it possible to process data using many of the data flow related items in its Toolbox without writing a line of code. This is a very attractive option for someone who is a beginner with some knowledge of databases, and for end users who may want to look up some detail buried in the data. This tutorial by Dr. Jayaram Krishnaswamy shows how the designed package extracts data from an SQL Server 2005 and processes it using several of its built-in transformations.Read Data Processing using Derived Column and Aggregate Data Transformations in full
"ERWin from Computer Associates (CA) is one of the most popular data modeling software in the market. I’ve been using this data modeling tool since its release 3; it’s now at release 7.

Many data modelers recognize the advantages of standardizing the names of their modeling objects, particularly when they apply prime-class-modifier words pattern; but, they can’t afford its tedious manual execution.
InfoSphere Data Architect affords functions for building glossary of the standard pattern words that you can then employ while developing and maintaining your data models. This automation encourages the data modeler to apply naming standard to their modeling objects which in turn promotes consistency across their data models.
This article by Djoni Darmawikarta features the naming standard functionality in the glossary model of that IBM software.Read Data Modeling Naming Standards with IBM InfoSphere Data Architect in full

ADO.NET Data Services leverages the ADO.NET Entity Framework to build data services for relational data sources. These include support for MySQL, DB2, and Oracle in addition to MS SQL Server. It can also be used with non-relational data using an add-on provider model. With ADO.NET Data Services, the developers can build dynamic internet applications (AJAX, Silverlight, etc) that works across intranets as well as the internet. With this in place data access by applications is made possible using URI Syntax and using HTTP verbs operating on the data.
In this article by Dr. Jayaram Krishnaswamy, you will learn how to create a ADO.NET Data Service from scratch. You will also learn how you may access data using the URI constructs. The backend data for this tutorial comes from a copy of Northwind database named TestNorthwind on a named instance of SQL Server 2008. In order to work through this tutorial you should have Visual Studio 2008 SP1 installed. You also need to have .NET Framework 3.5 installed.Read Data Access with ADO.NET Data Services in full
Retrieving data from heterogeneous database servers at Data Access Layer (DAL) has become common while developing enterprise level applications. This, in turn, leads to writing server specific code at DAL level and plugging in a configuration logic that determines which server is to be used at run-time. For an application of medium sized complexity this is well and good. However, as the complexity increases, the server specific code and the configuration logic tend to become part of the infrastructure that runs the application, which in turn adds to the over-all complexity of the application. It is in such scenario that Object Relational Mapping (ORM) frameworks come into picture. These frameworks dynamically generate the required SQL for the targeted database system. Using ORM frameworks the target database system can be changed via configuration file entries. Thus, they take care of configuration logic as well. In this article by A. P. Rajshekhar, we will work with Hibernate, one of the commonly used ORM frameworks.Read Data Access Using Spring Framework: HibernateTemplate in full

There are numerous menus in the front end of every application. They are often displayed as standalone boxes. The menu items are generally arranged one below the other. Menus can also be integrated into the design horizontally so that at first sight they aren't even recognizable as cohesive menus. CSS menus, which can even be transparent, are very cool.
These menus and the menu links are dynamically administered in Joomla! from database content in the Menus work area. Joomla! has six different menus in the sample data. (main menu, top menu, other menu, user menu, example pages, and key concepts) In this article by Hagen Graf, we will discuss administering, creating and managing menus in Joomla!Read Customizing the Menus Menu in Joomla! in full
