Sub Sonic - Let's bring this saga to an end...

Friday, January 4, 2008 9:32 AM

First off, thanks to Willie for his excellent blog post walking through how to create a layered architecture with Sub Sonic. Although it did make it clearer what the steps were, it still didn't solve the issue I had raised earlier: the UI knowing and accessing information about the database connectivity mechanism which is still required in the web.config file (even if its just a path to where the actual config information is going to be found).

However, I want to bring this saga to an end for a couple of reasons:

1. I think the underlying discussion isn't specifically about Sub Sonic itself, but about architecture, separation of responsibilities, and how that gets implemented in a .NET application. These are the topics I'd like to focus my next few posts about.

2. Sub Sonic, as I stated in my previous post, is a great tool for doing what it does...which, if you aren't some "extremist Rock Star" as my buddy Will would say, means that it does a lot for making software development easier and creating a solid DAL with entities that are expandable. To rule out Rob's work because it *only * covers 99.99% of what *I'D* like it to would be foolish, and again I apologize to him and his devs if that was relayed in the prior post.

So with that let's put this baby to bed, altering the prior blog post title at Rob's request, and we'll move on to other topics.

Looks like you've been bought off again...and by an OSS project...is it even possible to be bought by a project that has no method of financial gain? D'Arcy, you've done the impossible! 1/4/2008 7:36 PM | Donald Belcham

I can tell you one thing D'Arcy.....for a post to inspire the passion that yours did....I will have to check out SubSonic. I've never looked at it previously, but anything that creates that kind of debate warrants further invesitgation. 1/5/2008 10:52 PM | Shaneo

Is *THIS* the sort of obsequious response I should come to expect from Shaneo?? This is not the man who decided he would launch a riot in Jeffrey Palermo's MVC presenation!!

Stand up for yourself, Shane!! Show D'Arcy who is boss - debate him in an upcoming presentation on Subsonic at DevTeach Toronto!! 1/6/2008 4:17 PM | Justice~!

Shane already knows who the boss is.
:P

I am planning to respond to these comments.....I just need to look up the meaning of the word "obsequious" first...
