Reporting Services - Links

As i've been using Reporting Services for some time now several pepole asked me where they can get  demos and extentions to some of its features.
Here are some great samples i've found... i will try to gather a storage place and add some of my own too.

Reporting Services - Dynamic Sort Example
Simple example showing how to sort using parameters and by clicking on a column header

Reporting Services - Rounding out MS BI Platform
This white paper is an attempt to analyze the enterprise reporting landscape in general and SQL server reporting services in particular. It also covers the Business Intelligence (BI) platform since enterprise reporting is an integral part of BI. First four sections of the white paper deal with essentials of enterprise reporting in the decision making process of an organization as well as the current market trends in enterprise reporting. Subsequent sections provide a glimpse of the Microsoft’s SQL Server reporting services and case studies.

Custom Dataset Data Extension for Microsoft Reporting Services
Version 1.0 of Reporting Service doesn’t support natively binding and reporting off application .NET datasets. However, the RS extensible architecture allows developers to write a custom data extension, which could expose the dataset as a report data source. This custom dataset extension allows the application to pass the serialized to XML copy of the dataset to the Report Server. For example, a report consumer application could retrieve a dataset during runtime, e.g. from a data layer, and generate a report from it.
