XML ADO and all that...

Beyond Tables: Dealing with the Convergence of Relational and XML Data Developers are under increasing pressure to work with heterogeneous information. The advent of XML provided a data representation suitable for both regular (database tables) and irregular content, and was a significant step forward, but representation alone is not enough. We need a powerful standardized method for querying that data as well. XQuery fulfills that need (from the XML Zone).

ADOMD.NET is a .NET object model, used for building client applications that access an XML for Analysis 1.1 compliant data provider, such as that provided by the XML for Analysis 1.1 SDK.

Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) Utility: Component Checker Component Checker utility has been redesigned to provide XML support. The new tool includes updated snapshots for MDAC 2.7 SP1 on Windows XP SP1 and MDAC 2.8 SP2 on Windows Server 2003 SP1.
