I apologize up front if this question is too basic for this forum; I'm just hoping for someone to give me some clues. What i need is a way to get data from and to a SQL-server using http. Up till now, the application uses the RDS datafactory object for this - to our complete satisfaction, I may add. But now our old windows2003 server has to be replaced and I read RDS is out; I have to use 'WCF data services' and 'Odata' - then got lost in a staggering amount of info which made me wonder if my simple problem is gonna take a month of study...

I only need a way to get a recordset from the server, and subsequently submit a number of updates and insertions to the server. (could easily generate a sql-script for those, for instance).
Like many old people (I started programming 20 years ago) I feel like a newbee when confronted with the daunting possibilities of the new methods I read about. So, I'm hoping someone here can give me a few hints on how to start. I'd be most grateful.
