Following are some major differences between both
? As in classic ADO we had client and server side cursors they are no more present in ADO.NET. Note it's a disconnected model so they are no more applicable.
? Locking is not supported due to disconnected model.
? All data persist in XML as compared to classic ADO where data persisted in Binary format also.
