Overview of ADO.NET

  • Mahesh Chand


ActiveX Data objects for the .NET Framework (ADO.NET) is the latest database access technology from Microsoft. ADO.NET addresses issues with previous database access technologies and provides future scalability. Although ADO.NET stands for Active Data Objects.NET, it’s perhaps misnamed because ADO.NET is not an ActiveX/Component Object Model (COM) technology. As the business world is moving onto the Internet, one of the main goals of ADO.NET is to write high-performance, reliable, and scalable database applications over the Internet. ADO.NET uses .NET Common Language Runtime (CLR) services to manage the library, and it utilizes Extensible Markup Language (XML) to cache the data and exchange data among applications over the Internet as well as intranets.
