HTML5 Server data

105881 asked
Last Modified: 2015-12-29
I'm an ASP developer trying to understand how HTML5 gets data to display.
With ASP.NET you run server code to query a database and fill a data grid and display it.

If I'm using HTML5 how do I get data in my (SQL Server) database into a HTML5 table or grid?
Do I have to have an API on the server and read JSON data from the API or does HTML5 have functions to read directly from a SQL server database?
