    How does one go about populating a custom column in a DataSet Table?

    One field in the target table is a blob. This blob contains a
    serialization of a .Net class. The frontend would like to access this
    as a .Net class, not as a blob. The goal is to add two new columns to
    the DataSet's Table class.

    1: Of type object, to unserialize the blob
    2: Of type string or int as to setup a parent/child relationship with
    another DataSet Table for DataBinding

    What is the best way to populate the two custom columns when the
    Adapter loads the data from the database?

    (The database is a old legacy non Microsoft DB)
