ObjectDataSource SOA Style

So here's the scenario. After really digging your teeth into ASP.NET 2.0 and playing around wiih all the cool data access features, you decide to apply a liberal use of the ObjectDataSource for its ability to take care of the paging and sorting calls for you. Now, you begin to convert your site to a service oriented back end and you wonder how you're going to make calls against your web service. You have a few options in front of you. You can create a thin facade layer that will act as a liaison between your presentation code and your service layer calls, and hook your ObjectDataSource to that. This works especially well when you have a complex object model that makes use of the web service calls behind the scenes. It's also beneficial when you are generating your proxy classes from metadata or contacting a foreign web service.
