Create XML database and attach to a Typed Dataset - Kickstart RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to create a little test windows application to learn how to use XML as a database and then attach it to a typed dataset.

    I looked around the net tonight...but I not see anything really clear on how to get started.

    So far, I have only used SQL2005 in either full database and SQL2005 Express. So setting up database, tables and creating typed dataset to SQL 2005, I am familar with.

    My Questions:
    1. What tools do I use to create an XML database and build XML tables. For instance, Server Explorer has a selection to "Create New SQL Server Database"...With an XML is it a datasource?? Is it a OBDC datasource????
    2. Once I have built my XML database, how do I attach it to a typed I use a tableadapter?

    If I could get some guidance to the above questions....I might get started in the right direction.
    thanks, John
