  • Retina.NET 2.0 Core & Designer Released

    Hey! just a quick announcement to say that I released a new version of Retina.NET Core and also the new DSL designer for VS2008.

    You can download the precompiled binaries or source code from the CodePlex Retina.NET page. As always, comments / suggestions / critics...  are all welcome.

    Thanks in advance,

    PS: the Retina Setup package still has some older documentation, I know...   sorry for that but I preferred to release the bits and fix the documentation later (I hear some helping offering there...?)

  • Retina.NET project active again

    The Retina.NET project was dormant for some time, but with some help I'm bringing it back to life.

    The last official release was made on October 2006 (v1.0.8.0) and at that time I was working on the new v2 release, but I never finished that task and so the project came to a stop.

    Nonetheless, I have managed to include a couple of interesting changes in those internal Retina.NET versions, and I have found that some other people also have made some useful changes in their own Retina.NET version and are offering to integrate some of those new features with the official project sources.

    So, if you used Retina.NET in some project and made a change or addition to the source code and you would like to see those changes included in an official project release, please stop by the CodePlex Retina.NET page or and let me know.

    Also, if you want to participate in the project in some way, you have an idea to implement some cool new feature on Retina.NET, or you have some time to improve existing documentation, samples or Unit Tests, please stop by the Retina.NET CodePlex site and let me know.

    I'm actively working on getting the new DSL designer that will replace the old EntityGen project, but there is some other work in progress like: LCG support, Generics support, LINQ support & VistaDB support.

    Thanks in advance,

  • Retina.NET project moved to CodePlex

    As you probably know the GotDotNet site is being phased out in favor of the new CodePlex, so I have moved the Retina.NET project to http://www.codeplex.com/retina

    I have uploaded the last stable sources and binaries (v1.0.8.0) and sources to the CodePlex TFS servers for the latest (still incomplete) Retina.NET 2.0. I'm still trying to find some time to finish the big refactor to implement generic methods and collections in all Retina.NET classes, but that task proven to be more difficult than I have foreseen.

    Feel free to download the sources, binaries or whatever you find in the site, and if you have the time to contribute with something that would be more than welcome.

    Thanks!

  • Retina.NET default persistent data on entities

    Hi, currently Retina.NET defines as persistent public fields and public properties.
    If you want to change that behavior you must use attributes. For example, to make a private field persistent you must add an attribute, the same is for making a public property non-persistent.
