Service Packs to established products don’t generally warrant whole books, so what makes VFP 9 Service Pack 2 an exception? This service pack includes not just lots of bug fixes, but significant new reporting functionality as well as Vista compatibility. Service Pack 2 was produced in conjunction with Sedna, a set of open source components providing better interoperability with .NET and SQL Server, as well as improved developer tools. Making Sense of Sedna and SP2 gives you what you need to know to put all these tools to work.
When Whil originally approached us to do this book, the most significant feature that he wanted us to include was “wisdom”. We immediately wondered why he would use such a word in the context of recruiting us to do a book. However, we realized that wisdom is not the same thing as intelligence; nor is it the same thing as knowledge. Wisdom is acquired only through experience. Visual FoxPro has more different ways of doing things than any five development products put together. Which features and techniques are appropriate for a particular situation? The answer isn’t always obvious. In Effective Techniques for Application Development with Visual FoxPro the veteran Jim Booth shows you how! This book was updated and can be used for all versions of Visual FoxPro (6.0 or higher). A splendid companion to this book is our Making Sense of Sedna and SP2.
