The CData ADO.NET Provider for Facebook gives developers the power to easily connect .NET applications to Facebook data, including Events, Groups, Pages, Places, Posts, and more! The Facebook Data Provider makes this Facebook data look like SQL tables in your applications. With the CData ADO.NET Provider for Facebook developers can simply DataBind to data, just like using SQL Server.

Connect .NET Applications With Facebook

DataBind to Facebook data using standard Visual Studio wizards.
Comprehensive support for CRUD (Create, Read, Update, and Delete) operations.
Integrate .NET applications with Facebook Events, Groups, Pages, Places, Posts and more!

ADO.NET Provider Overview
The Facebook ADO.NET Provider offers the most natural way to access Facebook data from any .NET application. Simply use Facebook Data Provider objects to connect and access data just as you would access any traditional database. You will be able to use the Facebook Data Provider through Visual Studio Server Explorer, in code through familiar classes, and in data controls like DataGridView, GridView, DataSet, etc.

Using the Facebook Data Provider
The Facebook Data Provider wraps the complexity of accessing Facebook services in an easy-to-integrate, fully managed ADO.NET Data Provider. Applications then access Facebook through the Facebook Data Provider with simple Transact-SQL.

The CData ADO.NET Provider for Facebook hides the complexity of accessing data and provides additional powerful security features, smart caching, batching, socket management, and more.

Working with DataAdapters, DataSets, DataTables, etc.
The Facebook Data Provider has the same ADO.NET architecture as the native .NET data providers for SQL Server and OLEDB, including: FacebookConnection, FacebookCommand, FacebookDataAdapter, FacebookDataReader, FacebookDataSource, FacebookParameter, etc. Because of this you can now access Facebook data in an easy, familiar way.

For example:

using (FacebookConnection conn = new FacebookConnection("...")) {
	string select = "SELECT * FROM Events";
	FacebookCommand cmd = new FacebookCommand(select, conn);
	FacebookDataAdapter adapter = new FacebookDataAdapter(cmd);
	using (adapter) {
		DataTable table = new DataTable();

More Than Read-Only: Full Update/CRUD Support
Facebook Data Provider goes beyond read-only functionality to deliver full support for Create, Read Update, and Delete operations (CRUD). Your end-users can interact with the data presented by the Facebook Data Provider as easily as interacting with a database table.

using (FacebookConnection connection = new FacebookConnection(connectionString)) {
	FacebookDataAdapter dataAdapter = new FacebookDataAdapter(
	"SELECT Id, Where FROM Events", connection);
	dataAdapter.UpdateCommand = new FacebookCommand(
		"UPDATE Events SET Where = @Where " +
		"WHERE Id = @ID", connection);

	dataAdapter.UpdateCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Where", "Where");
	dataAdapter.UpdateCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Id", "80000173-1387137645");

	DataTable EventsTable = new DataTable();

	DataRow firstrow = EventsTable.Rows[0];
	firstrow["Where"] = "New Location";


Driver Features

Developer Friendly: Seamless integration with all versions of Visual Studio.
Powerful ADO.NET Features: Including support for ADO.NET Entity Framework (EF 5 & 6), ADO.NET 2.0, LINQ to Datasets, etc.
Replication and Caching: Our replication and caching commands make it easy to copy data to local and cloud data stores such as Oracle, SQL Server, Google Cloud SQL, etc. The replication commands include many features that allow for intelligent incremental updates to cached data.
String, Date, Numeric SQL Functions: The driver includes a library of 50 plus functions that can manipulate column values into the desired result. Popular examples include Regex, JSON, and XML processing functions.
Collaborative Query Processing: Our drivers enhance the data source's capabilities by additional client side processing, when needed, to enable analytic summaries of data such as SUM, AVG, MAX, MIN, etc.
Easily Customizable and Configurable: The data model exposed by our ADO.NET Providers can easily be customized to add or remove tables/columns, change data types, etc. without requiring a new build. These customizations are supported at runtime using human-readable schema files that are easy to edit.
Secure Connectivity: Includes standard Enterprise-class security features such as TLS/ SSL data encryption for all client-server communications.

ADO.NET Provider Performance

With traditional approaches to remote access, performance bottlenecks can spell disaster for applications. Regardless if an application is created for internal use, a commercial project, web, or mobile application, slow performance can rapidly lead to project failure. Accessing data from any remote source has the potential to create these problems. Common issues include:

Network Connections - Slow network connections and latency issues are common in mobile applications.
Service Delays - Delays due to service interruptions, resulting in server hardware or software updates.
Large Data - Intentional or unintentional requests for large amounts of data.
Disconnects - Complete loss of network connectivity.

The CData ADO.NET Provider for Facebook solves these issues by supporting powerful smart caching technology that can greatly improve the performance and dramatically reduce application bottlenecks.
