DataTable and DataSet support

description

It would be very nice to have support for DataTables and DataSets. We have reams of business logic that takes in abstract data tables and metadata to describe the relevant contents. We’ll have to write our own SL version of a DT to harvest any of these valuable (read many many man years) assets.
 
Domain business objects are nice -- but for large LOB applications, they are impractical for many scenarios.

Closing this issue. This isn't a Silverlight Toolkit issue. we've reported your enthusiastic suggestion to the appropriate folks in the Microsoft Silverlight organization.

I could not agree more. For simple use cases Domain business objects are great for showing how things work, but for interaction with complex business systems (CRM, SAP, Oracle, JD Edwards, SharePoint, legacy apps, etc), the need to support something like the DataSet/DataTable is a must have requirement.
