More Arguments Against The Dataset

Stuart Celarier sat down for lunch with Rory Blythe (two blogs definitely worth reading - Rory's is rather strange, but very entertaining), and they talked about web services. As if you needed one more angle to go at the whole objects vs. datasets argument, enter web services.

Datasets are available over web services, but are hard to work with unless you have a .NET client consuming the service. And of course, that kind of defeats the purpose of the interoperability that web services promises. The more and more I read about Datasets, the more and more happy with our decision to stay away from them I am!
