ADO.NT is Microsoft's latest data access technology and, as an integral part of the .NET Framework, is far more than simply an upgrade of previous incarnations of ADO. ADO.NET provides an extensive set of .NET classes that facilitate efficient access to data from a large variety of sources, enable sophisticated manipulation and sorting of data, and forms an important framework within which to implement inter-application communication and XML Web Services.
This book provides a concise introduction to the concepts, techniques, and libraries that you will need in order to start using ADO.NET in your applications. This book covers how to access data using datareaders and data adaptors, as well as how to fill and manipulate datasets and typed datasets. It also looks at the close relationship between XML and ADO.NET, where ADO.NET should and shouldn't be used within enterprise applications, and how ADO.NET and XML Web services can be used to efficiently transfer data between distributed applications.
