  • Connecting to the Caché Database — provides detailed information about database connections (including connection pooling) relevant to both native Caché object access and ADO.NET Managed Provider relational access.

  • Using the Caché Object Binding for .NET — provides instructions for creating proxy classes, and gives concrete examples of how to use proxy objects in your code.

  • Using ADO.NET Managed Provider Classes — gives concrete examples using the Caché implementation of the ADO.NET Managed Provider API.

  • Using the Caché Entity Framework Provider—describes how to setup and get started using the Caché implementation of Entity Framework Provider.

  • Using the Caché Dynamic Binding — describes an alternate version of Caché native object access that allows an application to access Caché objects on the server without first generating proxy classes.

Web Services (SOAP) can also be used to exchange data between Caché and .NET client applications. For more information, refer to the following online documents:
