Software Tree Updates NJDX, The KISS OR-Mapper™ for .NET

NJDX Version 1.5 Supports Visual Studio 2005

Santa Clara, Calif. April 17, 2006: Software Tree has announced NJDX 1.5, the innovative and versatile Object-Relational Mapping (OR-Mapping) software that significantly accelerates the development of .NET applications by eliminating tedious, low-level ADO.NET/SQL coding for persistence. The new version provides tight integration with Microsoft’s Visual Studio 2005 (VS2005). NJDXStudio, the Visual Studio add-In, makes it a breeze to perform O/R Mapping related configuration and verification tasks like reverse engineering of object model from an existing relational schema and vice-versa. In addition to enhanced type compatibility with the .NET framework, the new release of this database-agnostic OR-Mapper also provides many new examples of stored procedure integration.

Following some well-researched KISS (Keep It Simple and Straightforward) principles, NJDX offers a simple, fast, dynamic, non-Intrusive, and lightweight O/R Mapping solution. NJDX works with most of the popular databases including Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, IBM DB2, and Access.

Now, with just a few button clicks, one can create a database schema from an object model (forward-engineering) or generate C# classes from an existing database schema (reverse-engineering) from right within VS2005. The NJDX user manual, the mapping grammar, the API documentation, and many demos have also been integrated with VS2005. All this functionality is also available with VS2003.

To illustrate the simple and intuitive integration of database stored procedures within NJDX OR-Mapping framework, many new examples involving in/out parameters and result sets have been included in the package.

"NJDX allows me to focus on the business objects rather than on the low level SQL, “ says David Lypka, an independent .NET consultant. “NJDX facilitates rapid experiments with different variations of the database design with a minimum amount of work. I designed my Corporate Tax application without even inspecting the underlying SQL. This high-performance O/R Mapper is working great in my ASP.NET 2.0 Web application.”

“Thanks to great feedback from early evaluators, we have rapidly evolved our OR-Mapping technology and associated tools to meet most common data integration needs of .NET developers, “ says Damodar Periwal, President & CEO of Software Tree. “On the heels of providing an extremely simplified implementation of the data access layer (DAL) for the .NET Pet Shop application, we are proud to present NJDX 1.5 supporting Visual Studio 2005.“

A free 30-day evaluation version of NJDX OR-Mapper is available from Software Tree’s web site at http://www.softwaretree.com.
