LINQ in the Middle Layer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     

    I'm considering using LINQ in my middle layer.  As I understand it, I'll have to implement CRUD functions to pass entities to and from the application. 

     

    This is fine, but by doing this, presumably I'll lose the ability to write LINQ queries in the application to retrieve data?

     

    Being able to write queries to retrieve data as objects was one of the main attractions of LINQ for me, so losing this ability in all but the middle layer would be a shame for me.

     

    Any ideas?

     

    Thanks,

    - Chris
