Newbie General ORM Question

I am evaluating the VP suite and love it so far. I am just about to get started with the ORM features. I have a few questions:

  1. It is built on top of nHibernate, correct?
  2. Which version of nHibernate does it use?
  3. How does it differ from normal nHibernate? Are there any specific docs on this?
  4. Can I just use nhibernate? In other words, can I “drop-down” to normal nhibernate?


Hi Chris,

  1. Yes

  2. We support 1.0 in the current version. We will support 1.2 in the next version.

  3. Don’t worry, you do not need to know about nHibernate. You can just use our tool to generate the middle tier and use it in your code.

  4. You can use our generated code (entity class) and mapping.
    Using NHibernate:
    Configuration cfg = new Configuration();
    cfg.AddAssembly(“AssemblyName”, “hibernate.hbm.xml”);

Best regards,
