Hi There,
I am trying to access some tables located in Oracle database from Silverlight. I have created a web service that returns dataset objects. I am having issues accessing the dataset from Silverlight 4. I looked around and found that there are some third party controls but I am trying not to use a third party control. I am using VS2010 and SL4.
 
I would really appreciate any feedback.
 
Thanks
Jay

Data sets dont do too well in terms of memory usage , so that why i guess MS axed it in SL. Also manipulating data using a Data Set would old school . The preferred way to do this ,would be to return the data in the form of objects. Stronglt Type your data set at the sever side so that this can be transformed to a class instance and send that class istance to the SL4 application which can they be easily bound to any control.
