I always have used Enterprise
Library DAAB with stored procedures for data access with 4 seprate layers
(presentation layer, custom types layer, business logic layer and data access
My feeling is that this development approach wasts much time.
I have not worked with other ways of accessing data but sure there are many
ways that save development time. While searching I read about these:
- Data Adapters they generate whole DAL with stored procedures
- Linq with different flavers
- Entity Framework
- Using data controls like SQLDataSource and Dynamic Data
- Other mappers, code generaters and utilities
So much options and my little knowledge, I am confused in making decision
what development patern I should adopt considering that my development may be
fast, extendable, re-usable and up to the standard. Also I want to go for a way
in which my code libraries can be used with other technolgies like silverlight,
mvc framework, services if I ever need to use.
Kindly guide me and help.
