I was told to create a generic function which creates a DATASET and STRUCTURE to hold the dataset like tables columns rows etc.

I really dont understand what it could be used for? As per my understanding a dataset is populated by a dataApater from a SQL query and then it can be used.

but considering the requirement as of now what advantages would it have ? why would we need to create a functoin which a dataset can hold?

Well the Dataset is going to hold tables
So May be you need to write a function that creates Tables (DataTables) on the fly and adds to the datasets Tables Collection....

This is used in n-tier application architecture, all the data structures connections etc. are hold in a different tier, this is for easier maintenance and upgrading.

may be you are right...
in that case it might be required to create Adapter classes that would interact with the database create datasets and return to the upper layer....
