Share DLL's and data binding

P: n/a
I've created my own data classes to retrieve data from a SQL server.
I find it far more flexible. But it leaves me with some other
questions.

I've compiled the data classes to self contained DLL's. My VB.Net app
needs them and the companion Asp.Net app needs them so a shared DLL
seems to be the way to go. Until I get to the topic of data binding.

It seems data binding requires the use of a Data Adapter. But I don't
use data adapters in that sense. I'm just adding more dimension to an
application that doesn't need it. All SQL objects are accessed via
raw code.

Where do I go from here? I can't bind to a custom class like this, or
so it would seem. These classes and their data members don't seem to
be available as a bindable data source so how would I bind to it or
use it in such a manner?

Am I making sense? Am I missing something? :)

Thanks!

Nobody data binds? Nobody uses DLL's for anything? Nobody knows what
a data adapter is?

That's really funny, all these MS MVP's in here, all the promotion MS
does about these groups and they're apparently filled with
ignoramuses. Not one certified MS whatever understands what a DLL is
and how data binding works? I'm impressed.

What a complete waste of time these groups are.
