We generate your data access code for free!
OpenAccess ORM is Telerik's free object-relational mapping tool that will generate the data access layer for your applications after just a few mouse clicks. All you have to do is to create the data model of your application and the tool will do the rest. It's easy, quick, and powerful.
Telerik OpenAccess ORM is available individually for free or as part of Telerik DevCraft with dedicated support.
Reduce development and testing time.
Telerik OpenAccess ORM takes over the mundane tasks of generating the data access code for your .NET application (C# or VB.NET), effectively relieving you from a significant portion of your relational data persistence tasks. The generated code has already been tested extensively by Telerik and conforms the latest object-oriented development standards. By doing the heavy lifting, OpenAccess ORM can save you between 20% and 85% of development and testing time.
We take performance seriously. Just like you.
Telerik's object-relational mapping tool has been designed to help, rather than to intervene. It uses just a few megs of memory on the client, it is extremely efficient when fetching data (even in large data-intensive applications), and comes with many tools and techniques to help you optimize the data access performance even further.
Works under all .NET platforms
The Telerik's free ORM tool works equally well in all .NET platforms: ASP.NET AJAX, ASP.NET MVC, Silverlight, WPF, Windows Forms, and Azure. It provides integration with WCF Ria Services, WCF Data Services, and more. It also integrates well with all Telerik developer tools and controls.
You are in control of the generated code. Always.
The powerful Visual Entity Designer of OpenAccess provides click-only model creation and drag & drop object-to-tables mapping. Based on your model, the tool instantly generates the data access code of your application. In case you feel that it can be improved, you can always update it manually, or use the available wizards and tools in Visual Studio to tweak it to your liking.
You don't have to be an expert to use our ORM.
We believe that it is easy to get started with OpenAccess ORM, even if you don't consider yourself a .NET or data access guru. We've gone to great extends to ensure the tool's effortless operation, and we are confident that you will find the OpenAccess easy to understand and use.
Your database. Your stored procedures.
Telerik's object-relational mapper offers built-in support for more than 12 databases, including SQL Server, Oracle and MySQL. You can map classes to Views, Tables, and Stored Procedures. The latter is backed up by a Stored Procedure Editor which simplifies the setup and usage of stored procedures to just using your mouse. What is more, OpenAccess ORM allows you to seamlessly create database-independent code in case you decide to change the data store later on.
Many demos. Leading technical support.
Best practices demos with integrated unit tests, constantly updated examples in C# and Visual Basic, getting started videos and code walkthroughs are all part of the OpenAccess demos package, which we refer to as OpenAccess Samples Kit. If you need further help, we offer the very best technical support in the industry.
Is OpenAccess better than Entity Framework?!
We strongly believe so. In both cases you get an entity designer, but OpenAccess ORM comes with many enterprise and performance features, built-in (and tested!) support for many databases, spatial data support, new features three times per year, and dedicated support. But why trust us? Download OpenAccess ORM and decide for yourself. It's free.
