In this third part of the series of articles on the Profile
object, we discussed the provider model in ASP.NET 2.0. The importance of the
provider model in Web development was briefly discussed. Then, the Profile
provider was explained in detail, showing all the methods and properties
constituting that provider. Next, a step-by-step procedure was demonstrated on
how to configure the default Profile provider to work with SQL Server 2000. Finally,
a brief discussion on how to develop a custom Profile provider was also
presented at the end of the article.
Hope you enjoyed this article.
