Part 3: IronPython and advanced .NET > Databases and web services

12. Databases and web services

This chapter covers
  • Using ADO.NET to work with databases

  • Interacting with SOAP and REST web services

  • Creating a REST web service


So far in the book we’ve concentrated on creating fairly self-contained applications; most data storage has been in the form of text or XML files. For a lot of tasks this can be sufficient, but often the data your application will be manipulating lives somewhere else: maybe in a relational database or behind a web service. One application I (Christian) worked on was part of a flight-planning system; weather maps and forecasts that the application needed were managed by another system accessible through a separate web service, while user preferences and details were stored in a local SQL Server database.
