DbConnector is a performance-driven and ADO.NET data provider-agnostic ORM library for .NET developed for individuals who strive to deliver high-quality software solutions. Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) is a technique that lets you query and manipulate data from a database using an object-oriented paradigm. This highly efficient library helps with the task of projecting/mapping data from any database, with the support of any third party data provider, into .NET objects and is comparable to the use of raw ADO.NET data reader implementations.

Supported Databases

DbConnector supports any database that offers an ADO.NET provider.

ADO.NET requires the writing of SQL, which is often database specific.


Unless otherwise indicated, all examples of SQL are for SQL Server.



Once you've downloaded and/or included the package into your .NET project, you have to reference the DbConnector and your preferred ADO.NET data provider namespaces in your code:

using DbConnector.Core;
using System.Data.SqlClient; //Using SqlClient in this example.

Now, we can create an instance of the DbConnector using the targeted DbConnection type:

//Note: You can use any type of data provider adapter that implements a DbConnection.
//E.g. PostgreSQL, Oracle, MySql, SQL Server

//Example using SQL Server connection
DbConnector<SqlConnection> _dbConnector = new DbConnector<SqlConnection>("connection string goes here");

This is a setup example for the C# language.
