Been wondering how to build a C#, ASP.Net, MVC, API web app using ADBM (Advanced DB Master) data source on the back end? You’re welcome.
Install Advanced DB Master (ADBM) from http://maconsys.com then open the Sample database, ADBMSamp, and exit ADBM.
ADBM added a System DSN ODBC datasource called adbmsamp to your OS.
In Visual Studio, create a C# ASP.Net Framework or Core Web Application.
And select Web API, leaving the MVC and Web API boxes checked.
Optionally, you can add the data source as a database connection and work with it that way if you prefer, but that’s not necessary.
For our needs we’ll just need a connection string in the web.config:
<add name=”csADBMSamp” connectionString=”DSN=adbmsamp” />
