Intersoft ISDataSource is the first and the only data source component for ASP.NET 2.0 with the ability to support declarative multiple table views and hierarchical-relational dataset. It is designed to resolve limitations in the existing data source control that shipped with ASP.NET 2.0.
Encapsulate multiple tables or objects into a single control.
In addition to powering Intersoft’s hierarchical data retrieval, support for multiple tables in ISDataSource translates into easier organization and less work. By binding tables in one ISDataSource instance, you can change settings either for a single table, or all tables, greatly reducing both coding and debugging time.
Exclusive support for advanced Intersoft databound controls.
The multiple table support of ISDataSource is used extensively in both WebGrid and WebScheduler. Both Intersoft products rely heavily on multiple table support to extend their features.
Custom objects, generic collections, and third party ORM support.
Simplify operations by creating a single composite object to be passed to the Update, Insert and Delete methods. Automatically bind generic collections to .NET controls through an ISDataSource control. Enjoy the extra time on your hands with rapid development time.
Superior Data Caching.
ISDataSource's advanced caching mechanism boosts performance by using locally cached data instead of retrieving it from the server. You enjoy granular control over the extent of caching though settings which affect cache data duration, expiration, and granularity.
