    I'm wondering what the best practice is for inserting and updating persistant objects.  From my UI I want to construct my object using code similar to below.
    CustomerBO cust = new CustomerBO(); 
    cust.Name = "Joe"
    cust.Orders.Add(new Order()); 
    cust.Orders[0].OrderID = "12345"
    cust.Orders.OrderDetails.Add(new OrderDetail()); 
    cust.Orders[0].OrderDetails[0].PurchaseDate = Convert.ToDateTime("1/1/2010"); 
    CustomerBLL bllCustomer = new CustomerBLL(); 
    Inside my BLL I would like to do something like below and have it save my customer object and all of the child objects.
    public void Save(CustomerBO cust) 
    CustomerDA custDA = (CustomerDA )scope.GetObjectById(Database.OID.ParseObjectId(typeof(CustomerDA ), cust.UIDSchedule.ToString())); 
    custDA.Name = cust.Name; 
    Is this possible for OA to automatically save the objects with the appropriate ID's based on the FK's?   Thanks

    Hi Jeff Morris,

    In the case that you are using Business Objects Telerik OpenAccess ORM has no mechanism of guessing how your classes correlate to the OpenAccess classes. 

    However OpenAccess is fully capable of persisting changes in the data access objects (OpenAccess classes). This means that if you can populate your persistent classes the way you want to, including child-parent and many-to-many relationships, on Transaction.Commit() OpenAccess will save all changes in the database.

    However the responsibility of syncing the BO to the DAO lays on your shoulders. If you need further assistance, please contact us back.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
