Developing a database-driven application in C# RRS feed

    Ok, I'm fairly new to ASP.NET programming. I am also fairly new to these forums, so please re-direct me if I've posted this in the wrong place!

    I am trying to write a web-based application in C#. I need a database on the back-end. While developing, I want everything to run on my local machine using the built-in SQL express, but when I deploy, I intend it to be an IIS / SQL server model.

    I *THINK* I need to set up a database project to build the database itself. I added one to my solution file. I am assuming that this will allow me to build a deployment that both sets up the application and its database. I now cannot, however, figure out how to create the dbml file to reference it.

    Despite typing everything I can think of into Google, I haven't found a how-to or a walkthrough. Can anyone either explain the process to me, or point me at a good tutorial?


    Oh, Visual Studio 2010.
