 I do believe that you have been mislead.

I have a web service that returns a DataSet object. I just added a test web method to this web service that has a DataSet as it's single argument. I then modified my test page to first call the GetDataSet method, which I then bound to a datagrid for good measure, then I called back to the web service (ReceiveDataSet), passing the DataSet it had just provided me. I set up the debugger to break on that method I'd created so I could look at the DataSet that was being passed into it. Sure enough, it was all good!

Perhaps there is something in .Net that is more capable than the web service standards allow for, but perhaps not and the IBM people are just trying to dissuade you from using .Net.

It's fine that the method you created retuns a Object, once you're using the web service as a reference inside your project and accessing it using the "Proxy" tecnique. But what if you create a method that receive a ArrayList and a int parameters, then access your web service through a web browser (UDDI)? Will it build a entry with many inputs as you've got in the a ArrayList and the int parameter?
