We have been working on a (.NET, C#) project (yes, believe it or not we still are) and ran into something about ExecuteScalar and ExecuteNonQuery. We needed to know when to use each. I just got an article today that explains what to do and what not to do. Simple? Yes. Common knowledge? Well, we did have to research it.
As for Eclipse, since VS2003 doesn’t have refactoring tools, I found this site. It gets you started on Eclipse without the hassle of re-learning the basic concepts of programming. Refactoring tools are sweet. I wish VS2003 had it. Development would have gone so much smoother for simple mindless tasks like renaming.
I’m creating a project with various samples on how to use the refactoring tools while I learn what push down, pull up, etc. are. I’ll zip and post it somewhere.
