Leveraging Data and Services
Managing data is central to the operation of most applications. Learning how to load, maintain, and save that data is an important aspect of WinUI development. Two of the most important aspects of data management are state management and the service locator pattern. We will be covering these concepts and putting some of them to use in our application.
In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:
- Understanding the WinUI application lifecycle
- Learning to use SQLite to store application data
- Learning to use the object-relational mapper (ORM) Dapper to quickly map objects in a data service
- Continuing to explore the service locator pattern and implementing it with our data service
By the end of this chapter, you will have a working understanding of the WinUI application lifecycle and will know how to manage data and state in your projects.
