Introduction to ObjectSpaces
I’ve blogged about ObjectSpaces before and this time Nice West (of Fast Chicken Fame) has written a nice little introduction to ObjectSpaces and how he got it set up and running.
What ARE ObjectSpaces?
ObjectSpaces (OS) is an Object-Relational Mapping tool (ORM) for .NET, done by Microsoft. Its planned to be released in the Whidbey / .NET 1.2 timeframe.
An ORM tool allows you to define a class, and setup a mapping between the class and a database table, and have the tool automatically create / populate / save / insert / delete / update it for you.
