Basic Webservice Question

P: n/a

Hi As you can tell I'm a newbie to dotnet and webservices.

I need to create a webservice to return a list a computers on my
network, I have the code to generate the list of computers but was
wondering if anyone had any advice on what the return type of the
function should be. I want to return type that is farily easy to
consume ( I was thinking of using a dataset) has anyone got any
thoughts on this?

Cheers....Jim

You can create datasets on the fly, so you can populate it as you wish from
your "computers" code. My first choice would be to use a dataset as it
binds to most controls, and experience has shown it to be easy to consume in
web service clients.
