About SubSonic Tools for Visual Studio
These Tools integrate the SubSonic code-generation features in Visual Studio 2005. They can be used to generate your DAL in a Web Site, an EXE (WinForms/Service/etc) or a DLL project. The generated files are automatically added to your project's solution
and managed by the tools. The Tools also support code generation for an Enterprise Library provider.
At it's core it's:
- A Data Access Layer (DAL) builder that requires no code on your part, it builds itself at compile-time with a full object layer and strongly-typed collections
- A complete utility toolset, complete with Rails-like scaffolding, migrations (DB Versioning), and code generators
- A dynamic query tool, that lets you use SQL Server and the Enterprise Library without having to know SQL
- An OR Mapper that extends to views and stored procedures so you're not locked into the OR/M thing
