I'm not liking some of things LINQTOSQL and LINQTOEF are doing as far as the queries.

They return more fields then necessary, even when we are doing explicit selects, and there also seems to be some funkiness with the joins.

Wondering if anyone has been able to implement Simple.Data as the data layer in your CSLA project.

Hi Matt,

I do not have any experience with Simple.Data but if you get experience then please share it with us and maybe even code on CslaContrib.

Hi Matt,

Simple.Data looks like an interesting technology since it allows easy acces to a lot of database engines with the exact same code. After finishing DAL-DTO, it might be interesting to make CslaGenFork use it for the DAL side.

The only downside is the use of dynamic objects: it does't make your code run any faster. Then again, maybe it doesn't slow it that much...
