Bind to many data sources Collections Array HashTable ADO.NET DataReader DataSet XML
The ADO.NET DataReader to retrieve a read-only, forward-only stream of data from a database. Results arereturned as the query executes, and are stored in the network bufferon the client until you request them using the Read method of theDataReader. Datasets store a copy of data from the databasetables. However, Datasets can not directly retrieve data fromDatabases. DataAdapters are used to link Databases with DataSets. Ifwe see diagrammatically. Databases Data Providers DataAdapters DataSets
DataAdapter is a part of the ADO.NETData Provider. DataAdapter provides the communicationbetween the Dataset and the Datasource. We can use theDataAdapter in combination with the DataSet Object. That isthese two objects combine to enable both data access and datamanipulation capabilities. A Data View enables you to create differentviews of the data stored in a Data Table, a capability that is oftenused in data-binding applications. Using a DataView, you can exposethe data in a table with different sort orders, and you can filter thedata by row state or based on a filter expression.
