Data Adapter – The Data Adapter is the interface between the Data Set and the database itself. The
Data Adapter is responsible for efficiently managing connections to the database, opening and closing
them as required. The Data Adapter is created by instantiating an object of the MySqlDataAdapter
class. The MySqlDataAdapter object has two main methods: Fill which reads data into the Data
Set, and Update, which writes data from the Data Set to the database.
