Interesting ADO.NET Tracing Article

I just came home from the Dutch Microsoft Developer Days in Amsterdam. I visited a lot of interesting talks, including one on Atlas by Scott Guthrie and one on LINQ by Erik Meijer.

I also visited a session called "ADO.NET 2.0: Base classes, factories, and schemas and tracing" by Bob Beauchemin where he showed an interesting Trace feature for ADO.NET (besides a whole lot of other interesting stuff on ADO.NET 2.0).

In his talk, he mentioned an article at the MSDN site that explains how to setup and use this tracing feature.

It's not intuitive to set up (requires registry hacks and messy command line tools), but it's very powerful and useful.

In case you're interested, here's the link to the article called Tracing Data Access - A Gentle Introduction to ADO.NET 2.0 Trace Facilities
