Added DbConnectionStringBuilder constructors #137

I absolutely love Massive. I have to deal with a bunch of Access MDB files that get uploaded to a shared directory, and it's too much of a pain to constantly update my app.config with new connection strings, so I've added a new constructor that takes a System.Data.Common.DbConnectionStringBuilder, which I can build on the fly from filenames or other properties.

Assuming you have the correct drivers, you can use any of the following:



foreach (string filename in Directory.EnumerateFiles(dataDirectory, "*.mdb"))
var accessBuilder = new OleDbConnectionStringBuilder
Provider = "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0",
DataSource = filename

accessBuilder["ProviderName"] = "System.Data.OleDb";

var patientExtract = new PatientExtract(accessBuilder);
Console.WriteLine("Patient Count: {0}\tFile: {1}", patientExtract.Count(), filename);


Also, there shouldn't be that many additions/deletions. I think something went screwy with Github's online editor. The only change should be a new constructor right under the original ones in DynamicModel.

This looks lovely and thank you for the thought :). I would suggest, however, it's a "1-off" which means it applies to your situation but perhaps not everyone that uses Massive.
