    I have a huge purchased middle tier that returns datasets.  This is not a common web service interface, the data request is a HTTP POST of an xml document, and the response is a dataset.

    My question is can I map to this beast?  I know that I will have to create custom entities and a provider, but I am just looking for the correct product.

    Hi Bill,
    In fact the Open Access ORM has some features of a middle layer itself, but it is specifically targeted at accessing relational databases. We directly execute queries against relational data stores and have no extensibility points that allow hooking to data from a data-feed or a service for that matter.

    Best wishes,
