Which Web Template should I use in MS VS 2008 to connect to SQL Server 2008?
Posted on 2012-08-15
I need to create an application web site that can connect to SQL Server 2008 database. Both the site and SQL Server reside on an inhouse server; for development purposes, both them and Visual Studio 2008 all reside on my computer still running XP Pro.
I need my app on the website to allow users to upload/download documents, query/update/delete database records with a nice GUI and generate reports.
Which of the 'New Web Site' template should I use?
1) ASP.Net Web Site
2) ASP.NET Web Service
3) WCF Service
4) ASP.NET Reports Web Site
5) ASP.NET Crystal Reports Web Site
I'm an experienced desktop developer using VB and C#, now branching out to web work.
Thanks in advance
