[Mono-list] newbie: using mono for Web Services

I am using mono to develop several web services. One project is
returning mostly DataSets (.net constructs) and the main program calling
the web service is a C# app written in Visual Studio 2005. The web
service is Mono 1.8 on Fedora Core 4. There was no problem handing data
around between the two.
Another project is using a Mono web service to call another web service
(windows 2000 .net) as well as running Stored procedures over ODBC on an
AS400, SQL queries to a MS SQL server 200, and function calls to PostgreSQL.
I have often developed the WS on Mono/Linux and the client app on a
windows machine using .net. I haven't had any real problems with it yet.
