Can't use service as data source for ReportViewer in web project RRS feed

  • Question

  • In Visual Studio 2010,

    1. Create a new ASP.NET web application project.

    2. Create a new item within the project. Select "Report."

    3. In the "Report Data" window, choose New -> Dataset.

    Immediately a window opens to select a data source, but it only lets me pick a database.

    If I create a new Reports Application project, I can use a web service as the data source for the report.

    Why can't I use a web service as a data source for a report in a web application project? Is it a marketing reason to drive people to SSRS somehow or?

    [This thread seems to touch on the same issue.]
