Cant wait for Linq?

If you like me and need Linq-like functionality now, then you have to give Subsonic a try over at CodePlex.

Version 2.0.1 has just been released. I’m a convert!

What SubSonic does for you:

  1. Trim hours from your DEV cycle. This not only happens because the code is generated for you initially, but it’s also maintained by SubSonic whenever you change your database.
  2. Gives you the option to go full-tilt OR/M, or use SPs/Views. We don’t want to tell you what to do, you already know best. We just want to help.
  3. Help your application build itself. With our generators (class, scaffold, and batch-class) your site can build itself in no time. The scaffolding will help you work with your data quickly.
  4. A solid foundation from which to extend. Our starter site comes pre-wired with ASP.NET membership built in, AJAX, full 3-column elastic XHTML theme, and user administration pages from which you can administer your site’s membership. That’s at least a week’s worth of work – already done!
  5. Get your project from idea to prototype in a fraction of the time. That’s the strength of this project – using our starter kit you can have a sharp prototype up and running in the merest fraction of what it used to take.

    SubSonic is really cool ….

    After your recommendations i went and hooked up a site with it in a few minutes flat. Very nice to get you up and running on ASP.NET projects when working against a database.

    BUT ……..

    it is certainly not Linq.

    Linq provides a unified way of querying data no matter where it is from. Could be a traditional database, an xml file, collection of objects and source of data that implements IEnumerable.

    Check this out …

    public void Linq1() {
    int[] numbers = { 5, 4, 1, 3, 9, 8, 6, 7, 2, 0 };

    var lowNums =
    from n in numbers
    where n
