In the past, working with data has required learning a number of different API sets for each kind of data you needed to access. Relational data requires ADO. XML uses Xpath, XQuery and the XML Dom. Objects require you to write your own manipulation code. In this video, Jim Wooley (MVP in VB) continues to look at the Language INtegrated Query (LINQ) project and demonstrates how to leverage it to use a single API to work against XML, objects and relational data. In it, we continue exploring the ThinqLinq web site by demonstrating creating and querying XML to create and consume RSS feeds using ASP.Net with Visual Studio code name "Orcas". The video concludes with an overview of the language changes in C#3.0 and VB 9.0 which enable the querying functionality.
