Generalstruct/class .vs. Datasets Pin

Has anyone experimented with using structs or classes in C# to carry data rather than strongly typed Datasets in a Webservice environment?

VS.NET makes it as difficult as possible to pass classes and strongly-typed ArrayLists of classes in and out of Webservices and as easy as possible to use Datasets with Webservices and with MSSQL.

Nevertheless, profiling a recent project that used strongly typed Datasets showed that there is a massive run-time cost to using them (lot of meta data around and many Events being fired) which led us on to thinking about using good old structs.

We have successfully passed 'property only' classes in and out of Webservices (including classes that include other classes and arrays and ArrayLists of classes) and bound strongly typed ArrayLists to DataGrids and we can use a property by property approach together with stored procedures to get data in and out of an MSSQL database. The code we have produced could be 'templated' (generics will be wonderful) meaning that, in theory, we could stop using strongly-typed datasets.

On the other hand - who wants to reinvent the wheel if MS have done all the work for us in creating Datasets?

Has anyone else agonised over this decision and, if so, what conclusion did you come to?

Thanks
