Microsoft: "Visual Studio 2005 brings with it a host of powerful tools for building datacentric applications. First, there are some new objects that build on top of ADO.NET 1.0. These include a typed DataAdapter class that makes calling a stored procedure as easy as calling a function. The toolbox also contains a new grid control that is very easy to customize and control. Finally, the IDE contains a new Data Sources window that helps you manage these objects and create your user interface at design time."
