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

WinJS 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.
