ASP.Net Dynamic Data: Implementing Data-driven websites made easy…

ASP.Net Dynamic Data is a great technology which was introduced in the first service pack (SP1) of the Dot.Net 3.5 Framework. In a nut shell, it is a collection of user controls and templates for quickly implementing a web site to interact with a data source. You may implement full CRUD (Create, Read, Update & Delete) functionality with just couple of lines.

Visual Studio 2010 comes with two flavors of templates to create Dynamic Data based web sites or web applications; Entity Model based or a Linq to SQL mapping based. However, ASP .Net Dynamic Data has far more applications than those. Instead of implanting a fully-fledged Dynamic Data web site, you may easily introduce Dynamic Data features to any other website.
