I have used typed datasets in a few cases where I have to build a dataset from xml data or something along those lines. Most of the things I didn’t like about them expressed nicely by Shawn Wildermuth, (THE ADO Guy) and Rick Strahl here and here, I just dealt with because I wasn’t using them extensively throughout my apps, but just to solve a few specific problems. However, I now have an issue with datasets that I don’t want to put up with – instantiating a new object based on a typed dataset. WTF – it takes for freakin’ ever!
OK I feel better now.
