Akesh,
Are you rebuilding your applications then?

Yes.  We have build a base framework which has all the common settings like Iron Speed.  We created a single grid page and a common Add/Edit/Show page per table which reduced the number of pages quite a lot.  So for each table, we need to add a controller and a view with some metadata and it works seamless with the base framework.  If you need to review our solution, give us a call.

I took the opportunity to check out ASPRunner.NET by Xlinesoft. I am impressed in the applications functionality and ease. I do not think that ASPRunner.NET has many of the advanced events (CCW) however the platform is very stable. I created a simple web application which responded very quickly. Another impressive feature that database connection include PostgreSQL as well as ODBC. This opens the application to older databases which still linger out there. Equally as important the support is good. I have been emailing Sergey several times and he responds typically in less than a day. I do not think that there is one application for every situation however this fits the need equally and maybe better than ISD.

Thanks
Ray

I switched to ASPRunner.net a while ago. The more you use it, the better it gets. I have transitioned a few very complex ISD projects to ASPR.Net (some hair pulling, but learned). I can't think of one thing it cannot do that ISD did. I can honestly say it is better, at least for what I need it for. Get really familiar with their Data Access Layer (DAL) and Javascript API. It is awesome. Also, much easier to use with the multiple databases. Their next release is supposed to include Bootstrap. I am looking forward to it.

PS. Sergey and his team are the best!!!

I too am leaning towards MVC, as it appears, for the .NET platform, it is the way to go.  However, Akesh, I am interested in knowing why you went with the Mindscape HQ ORM versus just using MS' Entity Framework?  (Other than the fact that it's named Lightspeed ;-)  [wink]

i was looking at Mindscape as well. However,I did see this response to a user asking if Lightspeed was dead. We invested in ISD and Strataframe and are obviously skiddish .  

Excerpt from Mindscape.  

Hi Exm,

It's not dead, but it's certainly in a low active development state. We still undertake work on the product in terms of supporting new versions of Visual Studio and making performance improvements to the querying engine. We use LightSpeed extensively internally and therefore do invest in it. We aren't however making massive feature changes.

We did push LightSpeed 5.5 out recently in the store, which includes support for Visual Studio 2015. We didn't change the major version as it doesn't include any breaking API changes.

We've taken this approach before Raygun was released, but it's true that Raygun has become a substantial success for the business and therefore is the focus of much of the effort. We use LightSpeed with Raygun, which is exactly where there are some improvements flowing in under the covers as we improve it for the scale that Raygun operates at.

If you don't require Visual Studio 2015 support at this stage, then I would not worry renewing at this time.

I hope that helps,

Hi:

One thing which is different about Mindscape is that they have shared their entire source code.  We have been working with Mindscape for last four years and the product is just amazing.  As much as I would like to have new version but so far, there is nothing which we can think of which Mindscape does not have.  If anyone needs to discuss Mindscape, feel free to give us a call.

HTH,

Thanks, that's good to hear as the product did meet our needs. Are you using LP with VS 2015?

Thanks

We are still using Mindscape Light Speed 5.0 and hence not on 2015 but the next version of our application will be using the Light Speed 5.5 with Visual Studio 2015.  The 5.5 was very recently announced.  As we are using Kendo UI for our front end, we are waiting for their next version of Grid to upgrade to Light Speed 5.5/Visual Studio 2015/Kendo UI with our core logic.

So far, it works very similar to Iron Speed where Mindscape let's you select tables, scan for schema changes and generate the entire business and database layer.  Of course, you can write your partial classes which can be compared to section 1 in Iron Speed which remains intact.

We would highly recommend this product.  Entity Framework is a bit different but once you get used to it, it becomes quite natural to use.

Thanks so much.

We are using Infragistics IgniteUI controls. We evaluated the LS product using VS 2013 and really liked it.

It is out.  We have just not upgraded our core framework as we are going to wait for AngularJS 2.0.  If you need any assistance, drop me an email.

It would be very helpful as well if they can prepare the new demo along with the final release of Light Speed 5.5. The one comes with v5.0 was done about 11 years ago. Not very impressive.
