Accessing Data with ASP.NET

ASP.NET includes features that enable you to add data access to your ASP.NET Web pages with little or no code. You can connect to databases, XML data and files, and business objects as data sources. You can then display data using a variety of controls that provide great flexibility in how you present data on the page.
