    What's the best way to store data in a couple custom tables I have?

    Can the nolics ORM do forward mapping for me and I could just point to the main SF connection string to get my tables created cross-db?

    ...I'd prefer to use the latest OpenAccess, but I also want to make sure my app works across all instances of sitefinity...

    Hello Steve,

    Thank you for using our services.

    I would recommend avoid using Nolics. This ORM has been discontinued and does not even support Visual Studio 2008. There are no problems using Telerik OpenAccess with Sitefinity for your data layer. It is event preferable to as in our next major version we are going to use it for ORM.

    Believe me, I would very much perfer OA :)

    Wouldn't it mean though that I can only distribute what I make to users who have access to OA?  I can't imagine it's within the license agreement to distribute the DLLs with the component.

    Hello Steve,

    I am not sure about the license agreement for OpenAccess too. It is best that you check this with the OpenAccess product team. Well when we release Sitefinity 4.0 if you make components using OA for this version you will not need to distribute OA assemblies Sitefinity project will have a reference to OA by default.

    Ok, so OpenAccess it is :)

    Jan said it's within the license agreement to distribute the Assembly DLLs

    "Hello Steve,
    You can distribute your compiled assemblies that are using OpenAccess together with all files from the OpenAccess bin directory without any extra fees.
    Only if the enhancer has to run on a client machine the client has to have a license.

    All the best,
