Data Access Methods RRS feed

    I've been really getting into creating BLL & DAL for my projects. Up to know I've been pushing things up the layers by using the object datasource to get out of the presenation layer and returning sqldatasource from my DAL. Is the methods contained in the TimeTracker with the strong typed list methods a good and efficient approach?

    I think I could easily enough implemet a similar solution, the only thing missing would be some sqlcachedependency which I can add. But before I begain I'm wondering if it's worh the effort

    I think I hear you saying that you don't think much of the strongly typed layer ...

    See this article "Being Generic Ain't Bad" on MSDN

    Actually, I'm not sure. Is this the way to go or not? I'll read the article, thanks.

    I just implemented an identical system to what is found in the TimeTracker in my own (current) project.

    I got to say, it's pretty good. I can't tell i fits faster than the way I'm currently doing it, but it seems good. The one thing missing is a cacheing method. I'll look into the API.

    Does anyone have anything bad to say about the generics and they way they are implemented in teh timetracker?
