Best approach for processing data from a website for use in a web application

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

 I'm a part time prgramming enthusiat and have developed several web applications on earlier version of ASP.  I'm preparing to get back intoit and have been searching for ways to accomplish my goals.  One goal is to acquire data from a website feed and break it down for use of specific data in my application.  Specfically I want to be able to grab scores from NFL games so that I can use them in my application.  What I believe I need to do is write my ASP.NET MVC code to capture an RSS feed, then parse the feed (I'm guessing using C# string commands to break the feed down to variables that I can cast as integers and then use in my application.)  What I am uncertain of is whether this is the best approach.  Is what I am attempting to do best done with ASP.NET, XML and C# or should I be considering another approach?  Any pointers or suggestions for good examples/tutorials/books that you would recommend would be greatly appreciated.

Dim strTunnelID As String = txtGlobalTunnelId.Text.ToString 'Global Tunnel ID (He.net and ) Dim strUrl As String = "" ' Place holder for the URL Which will be provided after the password is hashed and specified by the tunnel broker. Dim strTunnelBroker As String = cbxTunnelBroker.SelectedItem 'Sets the Tunnel Broker to the user specified one. Dim wc As New WebClient() 'Allows for posting data to the server 'holds the server response. Dim strData As String = "" 'Provides the data for the form. Dim result As String = "" Select Case strTunnelBroker Case

MVC architecture in ASP.Net using C# and Microsoft Data Access Application block

The Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern separates the modeling of the domain, the presentation, and the actions based on user input into three separate classes [Burbeck92]:

Model. The model manages the behavior and data of the application domain, responds to requests for information about its state (usually from the view), and responds to instructions to change state (usually from the controller).

View. The view manages the display of information.

Controller. The controller interprets the mouse and keyboard inputs from the user, informing the model and/or the view to change as appropriate.

Creating a Smartphone Application and Using Data from SQL Mobile

In this exercise, you will use Visual Studio 2005 to create a Smartphone application. You will associate commands with a mobile device's soft keys, and you will add the ability to scroll through the list of available products (a list of images). You will create a data source for an existing SQL Mobile database, and then test the application in the Windows Mobile 5.0 emulator.

Data Points: The Enterprise Library Data Access Application Block, Part 3


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.

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.

Empty Website Data Source windown


Hi all,

I am Visual Web Developer user and facing a problem when I am creating a local report (.rdlc) file.

I am using Business objects as the Data Source for this report. It was working perfectly until all the items in the Website Data Source window suddenly "disappeared". The "Add New Data Source" button on this window is also disabled. Now the window is just like a blank box only. And I can't continue working with the report file like this...

I have tried undoing what I did before but it does not help at all...

Any reason for this to happen? There is no sign or something at least indicating what is wrong.

Please help.
