Hansel Minutes: Subsonic with Rob Conery

Code generator for DAL:

  1. Head over to Codeplex
  2. Download Subsonic 2.1
  3. Install.  No GAC.  No add-ins.
  4. Settings in web.config
  5. Uses ActiveRecord pattern; 80% of the projects are light-weight, doesn’t use Enterprise patterns
  6. “I want the developer to go home early”
  7. Industry strength: can it scale?  No?
  8. nHibernate is excellent at; caching; future query;
  9. Generally, start with DB; build out your model;
  10. Migrations can generate database for you.  (Define class in .NET code first.)
  11. Command line tool that can (Sonic.exe AKA Subcommander) generate DAL.
  12. Use typical repository pattern (returns IList of )
  13. Generates ANSI-SQL for multiple Database Standards
  14. LLBLGEN Pro: pocket book constraint; blows doors over Subsonic’s functionality; but it’s edge-case stuff;
  15. nHibernate: complex to implement;
  16. Subsonic: for people who aren’t into the tinkering of creating a web site; pragmatic
  17. example: Subsonic Starter Site (Dot Net Nuke ultra-light); no longer supported

Welcome to my technical blog. 

Here, I attempt to distill the Microsoft Certified Professional Developer knowledge I have accumulated since first qualifying MCP in 1996.  This blog started on 13 September 2007 as an off-shoot from my mixed up personal blog.  But it took a shot in the arm from Scott Hanselman's talk at TechEd New Zealand 08 "32 Ways To Make Your Blog Suck Less".
