Quickstart: Working with data sources (Windows Store apps using JavaScript and HTML)

[This documentation is preliminary and is subject to change.]

Learn how to use the different types of data sources that the Windows Library for JavaScript provides.


Sources of data

Data can exist in several locations. For example, read-only data can be stored in a local file within your application. Data can be stored on the Internet, which can be accessed through Web services.

Types of data sources

Windows Library for JavaScript provides several types of ready-to-use data sources: ArrayDataSource, GroupDataSource, GroupedItemDataSource, IteratorDataSource, and StorageDataSource. You don't need to use a IListDataSource object directly unless you want to connect to a custom data source, in which case you also need to implement a custom IListDataAdapter to pass to the IListDataSource constructor.
