ADO.NET architecture
ADO.NET objects
• Connection – Connects to the data source

OConnection and populates DataSet
• Command – Executes SQL or stored
procedures against datasource
• DataReader – Provides read-only
connections to datastore
data adapter
• Data Adapter fills DataSet by using built-in
Command Objects
– SelectCommand
– DeleteCommand
– UpdateCommand
– InsertCommand
• Data Adapter’s update method flushes
changes to datasource via Delete, Update
and Insert Commands
data reader
• DataReader object automatically holds results
from a Data Command
• DataReader object returns a read-only, forwardonly stream of data from a DataCommand. Only
a single row of data is in-memory at a time.
dataset architecture
dataset
• Miniature Database
– Made up of tables and relationships between
tables
– Set up constraints and referential integrity
• DataSets are disconnected
– Other users may change underlying data
– DataSets have no recognition of changes
datatable
• A single table within a dataset
• Contains all table data and schema
• Constraint collection
– Foreign Key
– Unique
Advantage .NET Data Provider
connection string

CompanyName = @currCompanyName WHERE ( CustomerID =
@ origCustomerID ) AND ( CompanyName =
@origCompanyName OR @origCompanyName IS NULL and
CompanyName IS NULL )
