Datasets, Schemas and Conflicts Oh My!
Okay, maybe this is just my “rookie” strongly typed dataset skills showing but why is it such a pain in the ass to map hiarchial schemas to datasets? I have this wonderful schema that I designed for the online donation site. I wanted to move data around from place to place using a dataset. (note: I am not trying to ignite the dataset vs. custom classes/ilist debate here). I chose datasets and that's that.

You already know .Net, you just want to know how to do it better, faster and more efficient. Well what with what I saw for ASP.Net, WinForms and Testing in VS.Net 2005 all of your dreams will come true. Now don't get to excited, its still a bit off.
