Selecting the ORM for developing ASP.NET Application

by Ginktage | Sunday, Jan 20, 2013 | 121 views

For last few years , I had the opportunity to try LINQ to SQL and Entity Framework and have been using Entity Framework successfully in couple of mny projects.

It’s not only LINQ to SQL or Entity Framework but there are various others ORMs available for the developers .

How do you choose the right ORM for developing ASP.NET Application ?

In my opinion , there is nothing like good or bad . Almost all the ORM’s available pretty much does the same . There are pros and cons with each one and selection merely depends on the team , expertise and the company .

Some of the things that can help you to select the ORM can be

  1. Kind of Support and the community help that you can receive for the ORM.
  2. Ease of use
  3. The type Application you are developing and how well the ORM is adapted for it.
  4. Licensing model.

What’s your take on the ORMs ? Which one would you choose and why ? . Share your views in the comments section .

    Personally I was concentrated mostly on point 1 – I want an ORM with some kind of tech support so that I am sure my project will not have data access show-stoppers. What do you think about OpenAccess from Telerik? I am now starting to use it in one project.
