The CData ADO.NET Provider for RSS abstracts the underlying data source into tables that can be used to retrieve data.

An important feature of ADO.NET Providers from CData is the ability to easily cache data locally. This allows the CData ADO.NET Provider for RSS to be used in an offline mode when access to the data source is not possible. It also enables complex SQL queries which otherwise are not supported by the underlying data source itself.

This provider was formerly named "RSSBus ADO.NET Provider for RSS"
