LINQ has following capabilities:

  • LINQ to objects: deal with in-memory data.
  • LINQ to ADO.Net: deals with data from external data sources, anything supported by ADO.Net.
  • LINQ to XML: API for in memory XML programming.

Language Integrated Query:

LINQ is the composition of general purpose standard query operators that allow traversal, filtering and projection of data irrespective of the source of data within .NET.

The LINQ query operators use an in-memory XML facility to provide the XPath & XQuery functionalities in the .net based language to act on XML.

The LINQ query operators act on relational data built on integration of SQL-based schema definitions into the CLR.
