The DataSet components are those components that inherit from the DataSet class. These components are designed to provide data so you can easily work with it, either directly with PHP, or with data-aware components.
The DataSet class is not tied to any specific structure or server. That means that although allthe built-in DataSet components in HTML5 Builder work with databases, you can create a DataSet subclass or component that works against PHP arrays or plain text files.
