A co-worker has written a moderately sized application.
The application was written to use strongly typed datasets.
Now, however, he has been asked to use a web service to access the database, and not to directly touch the DB. He has the ability to write the web service any way he wants, so long as it is the only means to access the database through the application.
He has a very short amount of time to fix this and has askd me to help. I'm not sure of the best way of doing this without having to modify a LOT of his code. Since I haven't any experience with this type of problem, I'm hoping someone out there knows of an easier way of making the switch.
Looking for fresh ideas.
