Web Site - Overview

This article is relevant to entity models that utilize the deprecated Visual Studio integration of Telerik Data Access. The current documentation of the Data Access framework is available here.

This tutorial demonstrates best practices for managing an ASP.NET web site with Telerik Data Access used for the Data Access Layer. This sample shows how to integrate the Telerik ASP.NET Ajax controls with Telerik Data Access. A recommended approach for handling database interaction logic is on the spotlight. The front-end layer is smoothly developed with the Telerik ASP.NET Ajax controls which use a service functionally dependent on Telerik Data Access.

For more advanced ASP.NET demos, you could refer to the Telerik Data Access Samples Kit. It is an easy to use resource browser that includes various demos and relevant information for the developers. The samples are grouped by technology (ASP.NET, Silverlight, WPF, WCF, N-Tier, etc.) and can be filtered by programming language (C# or VB) and complexity (levels 100-400). The Telerik Data Access Samples Kit is intended for browsing the code samples offline, so it should be downloaded and installed separately from the Telerik Data Access product.

The walkthroughs in this section are intended for users who are familiar with developing applications for ASP.NET by using Visual Studio and know how to work with Telerik Data Access. To complete the walkthroughs, you must have the following installed:

  • Telerik Data Access, which can be downloaded from here.
  • Telerik RadControls for ASP.NET Ajax, which can be downloaded from here.
  • SofiaCarRental sample database.
