As a java web service developer I want to support both java and .Net clients. I deal with disconnected tabular data. Clearly, my .Net clients wish to use the ADO DataSet when building their client programs.
As it stands today I am not aware of any native interoperability with ADO's DataSet from a java standpoint. Is this correct?
The nearest equivalent I can find is WebRowSet but my undersdtanding is that this is not natively interoperable; i.e. I can't send it to a .Net client in a SOAP response and have .Net clients unmarshall it as a DataSet.
So, are there any plans to broaden the scope of org.jdesktop.dataset.DataSet (to perhaps javax.dataset.DataSet)? And have some associated JAXB implementations that can marshall and unmarshall between the java and the microsoft implementations?
All feedback appreciated.
