    Hi. Thanks for listing Habanero here. I’m part of the development team and what is unique about Habanero is that it provides the tools to developer right throught the application pipeline, from the data source, to the business logic and validation, to the runtime-generated presentation layer. Most of the ORM’s in this list stop at the data source layer and then you have to start patching together the other pieces.

    Just wondering why CSLA.NET is not listed?

  3. Amr ElGarhy says:

    added it, thanks

  4. Roland Bengtsson says:

    And why is not ECO listed ?

    In my opinion one of the best ORM frameworks ever! http://www.capableobjects.com http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ECO_%28Domain_Driven_Design%29

    Added ECO, thanks @Roland

    There is another DDD tool available. nHydrate is a model driven development framework that creates an entire framework including installer project, Inversion of control projects, DAL, DTO, etc. You can generate as much or as little as you wish.
