    Hi All,

    I'm interested to know if anyone has done any development with sitefinity modules or other custom code using a different O/R mapper than Nolics.Net

    Our agency standard for data layer development is LLBLGen Pro. Because sitefinity is based on the provider model I assume implementing a different data layer for custom modules should be an issue since the UI and business layer doesn't "care" how the provider deals with data.

    Any feedback on experiences with other O/R mappers with sitefinity would be greatly appreciated!

    I would be interested in this as well. Currently I use LLBL for all of my other projects and was thinking of testing it out with Sitefinity.

    I imagine the only thing that would be missing is the automatic database upgrade right?

    Hi Kevin and Grant,

    There is no problem to use any data access technology. In fact, I know about some modules using SubSonic and nHibernate but probably there are a lot more.
    You can take a look at this module using SubSonic: .

    I have implemented a custom module in Sitefinity using nHibernate. I did not come across any issue. It works flawlessly....

    Also, I have used LLBL Gen for a couple of my clients (non-Sitefinity projects) and I love the tool. I still think they could have come up with a better name for the tool :)

    You should not run into any problems using LLBL Gen for Sitefinity. Hope this helps!
