Serious limitation of ObjectDataSourc e + DataObjectTypeN ame + DataSet as BusinessEntity

Hi fellas,

has anyone managed to get ObjectDataSourc e to work Datasets where the
Dataset is used as BusinessEntity class?

What I mean is the following architecture:

1.WebPage with ObjectDataSourc e
2. CustomBusinessO bject which
* does validation,
* uses a Strongly Typed DataTable as a collection of BusinessEntity
* forwards data access to DataAdapters as a data layer
3. DataLayer based on DataAdapters

Ideally I would like to use the DataObjectTypeN ame property of the
ObjectDataSourc e
so that the methods of the CustomBusinessO bject are with a single
parameter e.g.
Insert (Customer c);
The problem stems from the fact that the ObjectDataSouce requires the
BusinessEntity class (in this case this would be strongly typed data
row) should have a default constructor. Unfortunately, I could not
figure way of implementing a strongly typed data row with default

Is there any way around this situation?

The only solution I could come up with so far is to not set the
DataObjectTypeN ame and handle the ObjectDataSourc e's Inserting,
Updating and Deleting events ... but this still requires a fair amount
of trivial code.

It would have been great if there was a way to plug into the creation
of BusinessEntity instances instead of relying on default constructors

The ObjectDataSourc e isn't designed with extensibility in mind so you
have to adapt to it.

If you need more customization, you can use my ExtendedObjectD ataSource
that has more features and comes with full source so you can modify
what you want:


Right now to create the object it uses
Activator.Creat eInstance(dataO bjectType) but you can change it to
whatever you need.

I am using DetailsView using ObjectDataSource with DataSourceTypeName assigned to the specific class. SelectMethod, UpdateMethod and DeleteMethod is working successfully, except InsertMethod.

I'm using an ObjectDataSource with a stored procedure and am getting the following error when trying to update (ExecuteNonQuery): System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Procedure or Function 'UpdateRegistrant' expects parameter '@EMail', which was not supplied.

Hi ALL, I wonder if anyone has been using n-tier to bind to a GridView control by using the ObjectDataSource. This is our first OOP web application, and we have no tables. Right now we are simply working with objects in memory. So, it appears as though Microsoft requires that our datamapper classes reside inside a folder called "App_Code", and NO WHERE ELSE. So, has anyone successfully been able to place their datamappers in a...
