Updating Legacy Applications and Conclusion

Managed Connections

Lesson 6 - Dynamic Connections

In the previous lessons we’ve been using connections defined in the configuration file and loaded statically. This make sense because the Studio and other tools need to be able to access them. But since managed connections are completely code-based, we can also easily create applications that change servers or databases on the fly, either by selecting the connection at startup or redirecting an existing connection at runtime.

These powerful capabilities pave the way for multi-tenant applications, including Windows, web, mobile and even web services.

Exploring dynamic connections is done in-depth in the Learning Center course on Multi-Tenancy, so we won’t duplicate that information in this course. 

In the next lesson we’ll look at how easy it is to update existing legacy applications to benefit from managed connections.
