How do you expose a LINQ query as an ASMX web service? Usually, from the business tier, I can return a typed DataSet or DataTable which can be serialized for transport over ASMX.
How can I do the same for a LINQ query? Is there a way to populate a typed DataSet or DataTable via a LINQ query?:
public static MyDataTable CallMySproc()
string conn = ...;
MyDatabaseDataContext db = new MyDatabaseDataContext(conn);
MyDataTable dt = new MyDataTable();
// execute a sproc via LINQ
var query = from dr in db.MySproc().AsEnumerable
// copy LINQ query resultset into a DataTable -this does not work !
dt = query.CopyToDataTable();
}How can I get the resultset of a LINQ query into a DataSet or DataTable? Alternatively, is the LINQ query serializeable so that I can expose it as an ASMX web service?
