Contributing

The details of how and when the handoff of this project will happen are still being worked out. We are currently looking for interested people who would like to work on the package. We currently have a set of items in the issue tracker that we will be completing before turning the direction over to the community.

In the meantime, please use the project Discussions area and the Issue Tracker to suggest and debate future directions.

This project will belong to its users - let's work together to make it the best it can be!

When will a Repository Factory be released which can be installed together with the GAX, GAT and Webservice Factory Modeling Edition versions for VS2008 which have been released in Feb 2008?
The current one can only installed on top of the previous GAX version... Thanks in advance and keep up the good work!

It looks like we are talking the same language, Freddy.

I would also like to contribute to this nice project.

Benny, the problem you describe is specially increased when the database model itself has a bad design. Even tough, I agree with you since less experienced developers might be inclined to do as you said. On the other hand, if the entities are designed completely disconnected from the database model that will usually add complexity to the project. The point is, the guidance should help developers in understanding and achieving the right balance.

I am looking foward on the following steps.

This looks like something I would like to contribute to.

One problem I see with the Data Access Guidance Package is that people can be blended to believe that one should design the objectmodell from the tablemodell in relation database modells, instead of focusing on a good objectmodell.

But thank you for starting this project.
