    Hey there,

    I am loving the ORM tool so far!  It actually helped me find a few bad-design issues in my DB! (forgot to set a PK on a table... whoops!).

    One question I have is about Reverse Mappings and generating the classes from the table.  Is there anyway to do it and have the classes be placed in a folder structure in the project?  I come from a java background and really dislike the ASP.NET/C# lack of need for nested files based upon namespace.    Everything in the project root just seems odd so I always try to nest if possible.

    Is this do-able?  Or even a reasonable request?   :)

    Thx,
    Rob

    Hi Robin,
    We have set this feature request on our TODO list, however we are unable to give you exact time-frame due to high priority development we are involved in at the moment. If you have any other recommendations, please do share with us.

    All the best,

    Sounds good, I plan to really drive into the ORM tool over the next few weeks, so will keep any suggestions I have coming!

    Awesome job on your products guys... ORM, Reporting, Ajax Toolset... all gaps that most large organizations require filling!  I came from an ORM/Reporting background in Java so can't wait to dig into your ASP.NET/C# versions!

    Cheers,
    Rob

    Hi folks,

    we've entered 2010 already. So how about this more than 1 year old request, which looks to me like a MUST-feature; i couldn't find anything in the settings;
    did i overlook something or is this simply still missing?
    this is simply awful! i don't want to move the whole filestuff back and forth everytime i change the dbschema!
    pls help!

    Hello Darth Plagueis,
    What we will provide for Q1 2010 release (or even earlier with a Beta build), is the ability to generate in a specified folder. That way you will have to ability to put the files aside form the applications root. Currently we do not plan auto-generating folder structures based on the namespace. Maybe later we will provide extension point that the user can hook into and change the behavior.

    Sincerely yours,

    I am currently using the Q1 2010 release and I do not see a way to specify an output folder for the generated classes. I do see the default name-space option? Was this added, or is it still on the todo list.

    Hello Kurt,
    It is added, yet we do not recommend using it inside VS at the moment. In the upcoming week we will probably ship our update that allows the Visual Designer to work in VS2010 and we will also introduce our folder and namespace generation options (to be honest they are inside the product but still need polishing and are not exposed to customers.)
