Gizmox - Guy Peled's Blog Guy Peled's thoughts on development, and what ever...

I have seen lots of  .NET architect speak highly about NHibernate which I agree that is a great framework but I think that as it was ported from java they did not take the .NET advantages in consideration. I have tried for a while to use gentle.net framework which I found to be more of what I expected from a .NET framework as it uses attributes as it's mapping mechanism and by that you get in my opinion a better experience as a programmer.

Gentle.NET is a CLS-compliant, database independent object persistence framework. It has an extensive feature set, excellent performance, and reasonably complete docs. It features automatic SQL generation, object construction/caching/uniquing, validation, bindable list support, relation management, transactions, and much more. Oracle, PostgreSQL, MySQL, Firebird/InterBase, MS SQL Server (incl. CE), MS Access, SQLite, Sybase, and Sybase ASA are supported. It includes a NAnt build file as well as VS.NET project files for building under Windows. Mono 1.1.4 and higher is fully supported.”

NHibernate has taken advantage of .NET and there are contrib projects that allow you take adventage of attributes, etc.
