Description: OR.NET is an open-source object-relational mapper and code generator for the .NET Framework 2.0. The tool scans metadata, generates a data access layer in C# and assigns the relevant foreign keys to the resulting objects and collections. Meanwhile, SQL Commands are fully parameterized, and SQL Update, Insert, and Delete operations are transaction based by default.
All OR.NET operations are handled through generated code, which means that a significant chunk of code comes out. The latest release, v5.0, cuts down on the amount of code generated.
