The Data Access Layer dictates how your application processes information. Some developers prefer one DAL architecture over others regardless of the business logic. In this eBook, we'll discuss the following DAL architectures available to developers engineering different kinds of applications, highlighting each pattern's strengths and weaknesses:
- Static Repositories
- Instance Repositories
- Unit of Work
We'll also provide context as to where each of these patterns operate across the three-layer architecture.
