|« James, I come||Microsoft likes NLinq »|
This is not something I would say like this, but one of the Euss users community said to me this morning.
Just marvellous! Your good support for interfaces kicks the ass of every ORM I've tested. I can't understand why anyone would want to use NHibernate when Euss exists
Euss, what else ?
Trackback address for this post
Especialy, if you further extend NHibernate / ActiveRecord with tools such as Rhino Commons (Repositories / Unit Of Work) or ActiveWriter ...
It would be nice to have a side-by-side comparison of Euss with NHibernate (and related tools) .. and maybe DLinq also.
Euss really seems great ... on the paper, unfortunately, one of the first things users will notice is the relatively low number of posts in the forum (a lively community is an important criteria in the choice of an open source tool).
One can also find a tool useful, even if there are far better other ones out there.
So in your opinion, what would be the real advantages, the key selling points of EUSS compared to using more classical ORM tools ?
- Why does my service layer have to reference EUSS ?
- Is there an interface for ObjectContext so that it can easily mocked in unit tests ?
This is one of the main interests of euss. Then I could also cite some specificities like he synchronization framework, the web administration tool, and it's technical providers (cache, prevalence, hub, ...).
I think the main drawback is - as you said- it's "popularity". My next goals are to provide some little videos demonstrating those aspects, which for some are not even decribed in the documentation, and I know it's a shame.
To answer your questions:
- you service layer doesn't have to reference euss, not at all (maybe it's in the documentation for simplicity)
- I'm open to such suggestions. Actually we use the Memory engine internally in order to not need any database during our tests
I think you could ask those questions on the forum, if ou see what I mean ;)
I guess some nice videos could help increase the popularity. :)
