Getting started with Active Record RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone, I have recently been trying to figure out the Active Records pattern. I have created a blank test application and have downloaded the Castle Project ActiveRecords but have been unable to even start it working. I read their getting started page and it got very confusing. I then found this blog and tried following it but it works with ASP.net and I use WPF. The blog is kinda old so not everything matches my experience with active records but I was able to follow it up until it started using the web config xml file, which I don't have in my wpf app. Then I found this other blog which uses an xml file but also uses a windows service so was wondering if I had to use a windows service to use active records?

    Really what I need is for someone to point me to a simple wpf active records tutorial. I also use an oracle database and all the blogs, tutorials and stuff I've seen so far has been using the microsoft SQLExpress database so some help on the xml connection details (dialect, driver etc) for the oracle database would be great (although from what I read using the mssql2008 dialect is fine with most databases).

    I appreciate any help I can get, and I apologize if this is the wrong forum to post, there is really no specific Active Records forum or implementing new frameworks forum that I saw but if there is please let me know and I will move it there.

    Thank you
