Yes.

1. SQLCMD is the utility which supports command line interface to perform SQL operations. Output data in xml file & do opertions!
Refer http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms162773.aspx

2. Alternate way to fetch data is enabling SQL server option which allows to provides data on web in XML format (IDK where it is but yes it was there in SQL 2k). Its data on http so you can read & process it just like a web service but cant perform operations.

I am sure there are other ways too! like

1. Create own database format other then SQL

2. Set up API in other application to fetch/process data in other application & set up custom components to store/process them.

Enjoy!

Yes, we can access database without using ADO.net object. we can use ADODB object and other object like ODBC , OLEDB to access database.

According to me, in .NET Technology database access is done through ADO.NET.

ADO.NET contain the classes to access database. So, in .NET there is no other way to access database other than ADO.NET classes which also contains objects for DAO, RDO.
