I am writing a commerical website in asp.net I know that the SqlDataReader is the fastest way to read data from the database, but the bad thing about it is that it requires an open connection to operate. I read in a book that I can load all the data returned by the SqlDataReader into a DataTable object, which is capable of storeing the data offline without needing an open connection, then use that DataTable object to bind it to my UI controls. Does that sounds like a good design?

long story short, not enough information in your question to say it is good or bad. :)

With little information to go on, it is probably the safest for most situations to pass stuff around in DataSets/DataTables and not keep connections open longer than absolutely necessary.

You can use DataReader or DataSet to get data, it's up to your architecture

here is a article discuss about this:

for my architecture, I will have a data store, data access layer, business layer and UI. I might merge the data access layer with the business layer though..
It looks like my question doesn't have a specific answer. Each technique has its pros and cons.
