Welcome to the Repository Factory
The Repository Factory is a guidance package that automates creation of entity classes that map to database tables and repository classes to read and write those entity classes. The generated code removes the tedium of writing a persistence-ignorant domain model.
This package was originally published as the "Data Access Guidance Package" as part of the Web Service Software Factory
. Data access is a much larger problem space than just services, so we've decided to split this package out into its own project.
p&p has completed development. The source code is available here
The Repository Factory is not intended to be a be-all-does-everything ORM solution. Instead, it's a lightweight code generator that automates most of the hand-coding needed to build domain model object and persist them to a database.
