Presentation: Painless Persistence with Castle ActiveRecord

In this presentation, Hamilton Verissimo and Oren Eini talk about Castle ActiveRecord (not to be confused with Ruby's ActiveRecord).

Castle ActiveRecord builds on NHibernate, but frees the developer from the manual XML configuration. Instead, Castle ActiveRecord allows developers to  use attributes  to configure the mapping. The actual configuration of NHibernate is then done by Castle ActiveRecord.

The presentation contains demos showing how to get started with Castle ActiveRecord and explanations of many topics, such as
  • creating and using queries
  • inheritance
  • multi-level caching
  • validation
  • much more
