However, there are a number of essential points that developers and architects need to be aware of both in going down this route and actually negotiating the path.This article covers various enhancements and additional benefits to this approach, as well as important caveats and potential pitfalls (and how they can be avoided) that are generally less well covered but are nonetheless important. will tell you, there are a number of individuals who are ardently against typed Data Sets.Moving further down, each table can have multiple Data Row objects.In effect, you can have an entire relational database in memory to which your application can refer and save changes, although in practice, I usually limit the data in memory to one datatable or even a single datarow if possible, so as to avoid using too much memory. NET VERSIONS: 1.x Typed Data Sets Knowing the Strengths and Weaknesses Will Help You Avoid the Common Pitfalls By Hilton Giesenow In his article Efficient Coding With Strongly Typed Data Sets , John Papa discusses the common practice of extending standard ADO.
This article does not attempt to make a judgment either way.
Furthermore, this article is not intended to be an exhaustive discussion of the workings of Data Sets, data tables, data access, or any of the topics we will examine.
The following tip was excerpted from Chapter 1, 'Migrating from ADO to ADO.
DEFINE INPUT-OUTPUT PARAMETER DATASET FOR ds Order.
NET Data Sets through auto-generated derived classes that wrap much of the complexity and inefficiencies one faces with raw Data Sets (MSDN Magazine, December 2004).
