Is a DataSet the right strategy for me?

Hi,

I need to read from an SQL Server database every 15 seconds or so, and parse through the data in one or more relational tables to gather information which will be used by my program.  I have no plans to update the database, and would even favor an approach which explicitly blocks me from accidentally doing so.

So I need to get the updates every 15 seconds, and wonder what's the best way to connect.  I've never used a DataSet, but it appears like what I need.  What do you think?  Is it what I should be planning on using?

Thanks,
Bob
