    Great post, Jess. Thanks!

    I haven't used inline SQL since .net 1.1 – Stored procs are always the way to go. But with .net 2.0, you can use inline queries against your datastore in an ObjectDataSource. Does this compromise security and leave one open to SQL Injection. My initial thought would be yes, because you're not calling a stored procedure, but then I doubt, thinking that Microsoft has to have accounted for that.

    Perhaps I'm missing something, I'm only 6 months into the 2.0 framework and 3.5 is already ramping up and deploying… Can't ever stay on top of technology. Not sanely, at least.

    Goodday, Jess!
