    Hello telerik,

    Maybe a stupid question: will you support the new LINQ/ADO vNext versions in future for dataaccess etc. instead of Nolic? To me it looks very promising.

    What did you decide to go use Nolic?
    Just curious :)

    Hello Daniel,

    Sitefinity’s architecture is based on data provider model that does not require you to use any specific data access technology or approach. Internally, we will continue to use Nolics for the following reasons:

    • Nolics already supports all features offered by DLinq
    • Support for multiple databases (SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle, DB2, Access)
    • All database drivers are from single vendor so we don’t have to deal with different companies and we can ensure compatibility.
    • Automation through Domain Specific Language
    • Automatic database upgrade
    • Costumer support
    • Nolics will support LINQ and Lambda Expressions in the future versions

    Sincerely yours,
    Bob
    the telerik team

    Hello Bob,

    Thanks for the reply.
    I didn't looked at Nolics in detail, but I will check that out. Seems like a very interesting product. We are using a beta of LINQ/DLINQ but it still has quite some issues...

    Thanks,
    Daniel

    This is really interesting.

    I've been thinking that I need to implement some sort of ORM system in my projects but haven't spent the time to really investigate the industry and what was available.

    We don't build any "business" intelligence into our SQL code but we do use it in a lot of places to optimize tasks that would be very inefficient if we did everything in a middleware object.

    I guess it's about striking the right balance.

    And if it's good enough for telerik it's probably good enough for me! ;)
