ADO.NET 2.0 introduces enhancements to the .NET provider model and SQL Server managed provider, which go a long way towards getting better support for specific database features within the boundaries of a common object model.

To write effective .NET data-driven applications, a deep understanding of the ADO.NET object model is essential. In version 2.0 of the .NET Framework, the set of classes that form the ADO.NET object model are nearly identical to those in version 1.1, but Microsoft has introduced a few key changes. This article examines what's new in the ADO.NET 2.0 classes for database developers.

Most of the enhancements fall in two main areas: .NET provider model and SQL Server managed provider. Some of the new features are common to all managed providers regardless of the database in the backend, which is the case with batch update and the factory model. Other refinements are specific of the SQL Server data provider and include asynchronous commands and support for new features available with SQL Server 2005.
