User Reviews

  • Easy to install and use.

  • Habanero is by far the best Enterprise Application Framework/ORM I have used, it makes development super quick and fun. It creates a very clean domain model pattern which makes test driven development easy. Your modules are maintainable. Data loads are completely configurable allowing you to load the data appropriate for each scenario you are working with. You have the ability to configure your business object however you want. Excellent work!

  • I use Habanero for 1 year. I like very much. Today I meet Bret and I am more excited to use Habanero Testability and Faces. This is best ORM for China easy to learn and has power.

  • I came across this framework two weeks ago. In two weeks, I was able to implement it and have a fully operational WPF solution. Habanero is the best Open Source Framework for .Net. Going forward, I will use it in all my web and desktop applications. Thank you to the Habanero team!!
