Hyper-fast Grid with LINQ Technology
With each passing day, modern business applications face an ever-increasing need
for data — and fast data retrieval. As the size of that data source grows, traditional
methods of binding controls to it can often result in sluggish performance and frustrated
users. Don’t let this happen to your web application – destroy performance bottlenecks
with WebGrid Enterprise,
the first data grid in the industry to turbo-charge data access with powerful Microsoft
What is LINQ-to-SQL?
Does the below illustration seem all familiar to you?
Of course, we all know that one way to address performance issues with large data
sources is by performing operations at the database server. However, this approach
often requires substantial T-SQL coding, and leads to large libraries of specialized
stored procedures which must be maintained. As a database grows and evolves, this
can become its own bottleneck – there has to be a better way.
LINQ to SQL is Microsoft’s answer to these serious performance issues.
LINQ stands for Language Integrated Query, and is a subset of Microsoft .NET Framework
3.5. With LINQ, you can write SQL queries in .NET managed languages such as C# or
VB.NET. LINQ to SQL means that your managed language query will be automatically
translated into T-SQL behind the scenes.
The true power of LINQ to SQL is in its ability to generate T-SQL queries that are
fully compatible with SQL Server 2000, 2005, 2008 and Express editions. It can also
process queries that involve several operations in a single call, such as sorting,
grouping, aggregate computation, and paging.
LINQ to SQL translates the view requested by the databound control into a T-SQL
compatible query, freeing developers from the task writing the queries themselves.
