I have even managed to communicate with ASP.NET to MySQL (which is great)
One MAJOR problem... I can't use the GUI parameter builder. I'm not too bothered about using a graphical userface, I would rather take the time to hand code the store procedures by hand...
I thought if I did the Stored Procedures in MySQL I would be able to ADD them into my ASP.net TABLE ADAPTERS using the ADD EXISTING STORED PROCEDURES function in Visual Studio...
Not so... Everything is blank. Is the only way that I can communicate to MySQL stored procedures is through the presentation level and by setting up temp table adapters on webpage backend code (*.aspx.vb) page???
Can't I use the three tier model having a Data Access Layer / Business Logic Layer and then finally a Web/Presentation Layer?
This is a major concern to whether I can even consider using MySQL as a database in bigger projects in the future.
