It was clear to begin with, but you're the intent of WSDL. The WSDL file for your web service is used to generate the client proxy, including all types necessary to makes calls on your web service. This is what WSDL is for, and what helps makes web services platform- and implementation-independent. You can discover information about a web service using the ubiquitous XML format, even at runtime.

What you're trying to do is more of a .NET Remoting tactic. You don't need to have an assembly that defines your types, since the client proxy that is generated will contain them - that again is what WSDL is partly for (to describe the types used, as well as all the methods, etc.). If you do want to share the types (perhaps they have some handy methods), then simply go into the generated class file (just show hidden files in your project) and change the type to your class from the MyClasses assembly.

Again, going back to the original question of classes vs. structs vs. DataSets - you can use anything. You can pass the intrinics (int, long, string, char, etc.) and anything else you like, even arrays like a byte[] array (commonly used for images, though DIME is much faster).

What you use is up to you and your implementation, but you can use anything. Take a look at http://www.xmethods.net[^] for a huge list of web services, most (all?) of which don't use DataSets and just return whatever types they want, which are defined in the web service's WSDL.
