Need for creating lists of type ReadOnlyListBase...

I have been using CSLA for a couple of years now and am about to start a new project. I am planning out how I will be laying out my objects and basically do not see the need to use ReadOnlyListBase.

In the past, when I create and InfoList class I seem to spend too much time creating the class, criteria and data access. I will be using Entity Framework for the access layer, so that should help a bit. However, I think that for lists, it might be better to use IEnumerable<MyInfoObject>.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

That may work fine, with the following limitations (off the top of my head):

My recommendation is that you look at the current CSLA 4 code techniques for using ROLB and ROB (as shown in the Using CSLA 4 ebooks). The amount of code required is quite low - and (assuming you want the features of the data portal and data binding) you'll almost certainly end up writing at least that much code to roll your own solution.
