Telerik Data Access is a tool that aids the development of data oriented applications. As an object-relational mapper, it solves the object-relational impedance mismatch – a set of conceptual and technical problems which occur when using a RDBMS from within applications developed with object-oriented language.
Telerik Data Access enables you to work with data in the form of domain-specific hierarchies of objects without concerning yourself with the underlying database tables and columns. This adds a level of abstraction over the data, allows the developer to concentrate on solving the business logic problems at hand and reduces the amount of code required for to develop and maintain well designed, data-oriented applications.
Often times all that a developer needs to accomplish or progress the task at hand is guidance on how to use a certain set of features. The Developer's Guide section aims to provide you with information on how to combine the features of Telerik Data Access in order to accomplish a concrete task. Each section within the Developer's Guide deals with a specific topic and contains “How to” articles regarding various Telerik Data Access use cases, such as defining your Domain Model mapping, retrieving data using LINQ, calling stored procedures and functions, integrating Telerik Data Access in Web Applications, and many others.
