The TAstaDataSet set is an in-memory dataset. It descends from the TDataSet object in the Delphi VCL. The TAstaDataSet can be used like a Delphi TTable but it doesn't use the BDE. In essence, it is the "thin" in "thin client". Since it resides in memory, you will also find that it is very fast.
The TAstaDataSet implements master-detail support, sorting , persistence, cloning and filtering.
The same methods and techniques that you can use with TTables are used with the TAstaDataSet. Be certain to define fields before using the TAstaDataSet.
