VB.NET Version of the Code for the N-Layer Design Articles Now Available
He used an on-line code translator to do most of the translation and then manually fixed some open issues. I briefly looked at it and tested the code, and everything seems to work fine.
There's one small issue though. My original C# code used using blocks in all data access methods. Apparently, the converter had problems with that so now all using blocks have been replaced with standard Try Catch blocks. I think the "issue" makes sense, as using is just a language trick that eventually compiles to a standard Try / Catch block so when you look at the MSIL, you probably just get a Try / Catch block.
Anyway, I am very happy with Peter's efforts. Peter: thanks a lot for doing this.
I haven't tested this VB version as thoroughly as I tested the C# edition, so if you find an issue with the VB version: please let me know.
Have fun with the VB version which you can find here and at the end of the each article.

When you post a comment, you have to provide your name and the comment. Your e-mail address is optional and you only need to provide it if you want me to contact you. It will not be displayed along with your comment. I got sick and tired of the comment spam I was receiving, so I have protected this page with a simple calculation exercise. This means that if you want to leave a comment, you'll need to complete the calculation before you hit the Post Comment button.

Please correct the following errors:
Unfortunately, something went wrong and your message or comments have not been submitted successfully.
There's a fair chance things broke down because you tried to post something that looks like HTML. Things that look like HTML include (X)HTML, obviously, XML, ASP.NET markup and c# generics syntax as all of them use the < and > characters.
If that's the case, try altering your message and remove anything that looks like an angled bracket. You can replace them with [ and ] for example so you can still make it look like HTML to some extend.
If, on the other hand, you were trying to spam this web site, I am pretty glad I caught you in the act and stopped you from doing so ;-)
Also, please don't use links in your posts; I had to block them to filter out most of the junk mail I am receiving.
