Hour 10. Working with XML

In recent years, XML has become one of the most well-known and important technologies for representing data. Regarded by many as the key to interoperability and flexibility across applications and platforms, XML is sure to become as prevalent as HTML some time in the not-so-distant future. It's fortunate, then, that XML support is embedded deeply into the Microsoft .NET Framework, and especially into ADO.NET.

In this hour, you will see how to:

  • Read XML into a DataSet

  • Write a DataSet to a file as XML

  • Retrieve XML directly from SQL Server 2000
