Q1 2010 will be a milestone release for our enterprise-grade ORM. With it we will introduce the new Visual Designer for OpenAccess ORM. The designer will give developers the ability to map their databases on a specially designed graphical surface as well as perform modifications to the mapping process and the domain model. Some of the features included in the designer are:
A unique feature of the Visual Designer for OpenAccess ORM will be the Validation Rules. It will help validate your model once your finished working with it and eliminate mistakes like missing primary keys. We have also conveniently created toolbox items that will allow you to perform the basic drag and drop mapping, set table relationships and inheritance as well as insert comment.
With Q1 2010 OpenAccess ORM will introduce support for the embedded SQL database engine VistaDB. Finally the already popular Data Services Wizard, that automates the process of connecting OpenAccess ORM to web services like Astoria and WCF, will no longer come as a separate installation but will be fully integrated in Telerik OpenAccess ORM Q1 2010.
Stay tuned to this blog for more details on the upcoming Q1 2010 release.
