Our declarative data source components are intended to specify declaratively how to retrieve the data for the report. They do not contain any data at all, they only specify the means how to obtain it e.g. in the case of SqlDataSource - by executing a SQL query against a database.
Our goal for the data source components is to be as generic as possible and allow you to connect to any database. So in this line of thoughts, we only utilize the available features of the ADO.NET connectors and do not add any custom features for specific database only. In this line of thoughts, we get the available DBTypes from the System.Data assembly and namely from the DbType Enumeration
, which does not expose a Structured type.
All the best,
