I was rummaging the internet learning aspx and came across the concept of: Microsoft Application Block for Data Access in .NET
It seems great of course. The articles are all early 2003-5 such as
So the question is - is this tech still relevant and should I be using it?
E nterprise applications can have a wide variety of data update requirements. Sometimes you need to save multiple rows of changes at once within a single transaction. Other times, the user must be allowed to enter multiple rows of data, send them to the database in a batch; and if a row or two fails, only the rows that succeeded should be committed and remain committed.

Last month I explored the foundation of the Enterprise Library Data Access Application Block (DAAB) including how it all fits into an architecture (see Data Points: The Enterprise Library Data Access Application Block, Part 1).

A solid data access later (DAL) can benefit an application by hiding redundant tasks, helping handle exceptions more gracefully, helping clean up resources more efficiently, and providing a layer of abstraction from the database.

The System.Data.dll assembly in the .NET Framework contains namespaces whose base classes can be used to create custom data providers. These namespaces also define a number of data access interfaces and base classes that let developers create data providers that will interoperate with other custom providers. Using the ADO.NET classes Connection, Command, DataReader, and DataAdapter, writing a provider is easier than writing one for OLE DB. This article explains these classes and their implementation, and how they can be used to write a variety of different kinds of data providers.

I am currently trying to display the contents of a document library within a separate site collection (different Web Application). The source document library is hosted on a Records Center on a Web Application with a name of records.example.com. The destination
site (where the documents need to be displayed) is on a Web Application named teamsite.example.com
I am thinking web services is the way to go, but when I setup a connection to records.example.com/_vti_bin/Lists.asmx, I receive an error when trying to get the data:
The server returned a non-specific error when trying to get data from the data source. Check the format and content of your query and try again.
Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Smart client applications are responsive and promote interactivity with the user. In this article, we continue building a smart client application using NHibernate for data access and Rhino Service Bus for reliable communication with the server.
Julie Lerman shows database administrators how to limit access to databases from the Entity Framework by allowing it to work only with views and stored procedures instead of tables-without impacting application code or alienating developers.
Smart client applications are responsive and promote interactivity with the user. In this article, we start the processes of planning and building a smart client application using NHibernate for data access and Rhino Service Bus for reliable communication with the server.
