What is a Dataset?

Datasets are the result of bringing together ADO and XML. A dataset contains one or more data of tabular XML, known as DataTables, these data can be treated separately, or can have relationships defined between them. Indeed these relationships give you ADO data SHAPING without needing to master the SHAPE language, which many people are not comfortable with.

The dataset is disconnected in-memory cache database. The dataset object model looks like this:
    • Dataset
    •   DataTableCollection
    •   DataTable
    •    DataView
    •    DataRowCollection
    •     DataRow
    •    DataColumnCollection
    •     DataColumn
    •    ChildRelations
    •    ParentRelations
    •    Constraints
    •    PrimaryKey
    • DataRelationCollection
