Default SqlDataSource - control ?

Why should I use SqlDataSource control even though I can use desktop-application style {SqlConnection, SqlCommand and SqlDataReader/SqlDataAdapter} combination for accessing SQL Server Database tables?

The idea of the SQLDataSource is to eliminate the need for you to code out all the details of the database connection and data retrieval plumbing.
