C# API

The eXtremeDB C# API (provided only in Windows packages) consists of a set of wrapper classes that encapsulate the low-level C functions which make up the eXtremeDB runtime. The usage of these classes is demonstrated in the C# SDK Samples. For developers new to eXtremeDB, we recommend the Quick Start tutorial to quickly learn the programming fundamentals. Then proceed to build and run the SDK samples.

As demonstrated in these samples, a C# application will define its database schema using native C# classes with the [Persistent] attribute. Typically these database classes are then specified in the Database.Parameters.Classes initialization list as an argument to the Database.Open() method. The required eXtremeDB runtime libraries are loaded dynamically when the a Database object is instantiated.
