BizBlox 1.5 Released and now includes code generation

Version 1.5 is now in two seperate flavours: .Net 1.1 and .Net 2.0 and also comes with the BizBloxBuilder code generation system which works with SQL2000 and SQL2005.

We offer professional support options for anyone intending to use this suite in a professional environment.

We currently use BizBlox to run multiple production environments in both .Net 1.1 and 2.0 dealing with hundreds of thousands of transactions per day. Rock Solid!

BizBlox 2.0 is nearly complete - check out the Branch in SVN

BizBlox 2.0 is a big change from 1.x but we still believe that mapping scripts are NOT how an ORM should work.

Some key features in 2.0 are:

1. Attribute based control of object->sql data mapping allowing finer control over the object being persisted - you can now choose how you structure your tables and handle the object type mapping from attributes on the property itself.

2. Not all properties of an object are persisted anymore... read more

BizBlox 1.4 Release includes .Net 2.0 Support

Finally, we have relased a new version of BizBlox. This release includes a new code track for .Net 2.0 which is specific for ADO2. We aim to keep compatibility with legacy code and continue to support new releases with the 1.1 framework, but there are now specific features (such as transactions) which are using ADO2 only code. The current 1.4 release is missing some documentation and unit tests, but the final 1.4 will come very shortly.
