Thread: ORM Framework

    Lightbulb ORM Framework

    A few weeks back I had asked a question about DevForce Express (Should I use it?) in this forum. Now I have found on the internet an open source framework called NHibernate which is very similar. Which one should I use? Open source or Microsoft? Since Dot Net is Microsoft would it make more sense to stick to a Microsoft suggested product? What problems am I likely to face?

    They're both free, so I would choose whichever seemed easier to use. If the IdeaBlade product includes tech support, that would be an advantage. Otherwise, the NHibernate user community may be larger than the IdeaBlade community, in which case you'd be more likely to get help with NHibernate questions.
