Hello, all. How are you? Regarding Shaun's latest reply, I wanted to ask if anyone in the community has stepped up as of yet to create a proof of concept for using nHibernate (or another open source object-relational mapper) as the new DAL for DotNetNuke.
If not, then I would like to volunteer for the effort if the Core Team is still accepting submissions for this endeavor outside of those currently being developed by Michael Washington and David Haggard.
That being said, what are the requirements for the new DAL and what are the evaluation criteria that the Core Team will employ to select the "winning" DAL replacement? According to Shaun, those appear to be: "to explain the impact on the current DAL, migration
path, education path, implementation effort involved, benefits related to the stated business objectives, risks and/or outstanding issues." Are there any others, though? Also, when is the deadline for submissions - August 1 perhaps?
Also, if no one else is currently working on a proof of concept involving an object-relational mapper, then is there anyone who would like to join me in this effort? I certainly don't mind doing it myself, but if anyone would like to help, then I would appreciate
Please let me know what you all think. Thanks and have a good one.
