I am currently running an .ASP app which uses ADO's client-side RDS ActiveX object to pull real-time db queries without having to refresh the page. One primary issue is the COM marshalling and the fact that the recordsets cannot penetrate firewalls. If the recordsets were XML datasets, there would not be an issue, but I am not aware of any RDS.NET sort of technology. Did Microsoft drop RDS? Does anyone know of a way to use ADO.NET in this fashion? For that matter, is there a way to transmit a disconnected recordset which can be accessed via client-side script upon page load? Thanks for the help!
