One of the cool new features of ASP.NET 2.0 is its rich declarative databinding. In addition to traditional techniques like databinding to a back-end SQL database, you can also databind to web services, using the ObjectDataSource.
In this DevNugget, Mid-Atlantic .net Developer Evangelist G. Andrew Duthie (aka .net DEvHammer) shows you how you can very quickly create a web service to return structured data using a .net 2.0 DataSet class, then how you can easily bind your web service to an ASP.NET 2.0 GridView control using the ObjectDataSource, including both displaying and updating data.
