The most important thing to point out whenever I talk about ASP.NET 2.0 data-driven applications is:
The GridView and DetailsView controls can easily be used with the ObjectDataSource, and provide clean abstractions for doing data access. I think what you mean is avoid using SqlDataSource (which causes SQL statements to be saved in a .aspx page). No?
Hi Daniel, I'm partially with you as you can see at my (german) post from the beginning of this year: http://blogs.dotnetgerman.com/alexonasp.net/PermaLink,guid,125eae60-b11e-46b9-99a4-c28d534cb29c.aspx
@scottgu: I love the object data source for sure :-) Daniel
