Hello there,

I've been using DataObjects 3.9.* in multiple commercial solutions for years.

What is stopping me from using 4.0 in new applications is the (very) poor documentation. I find this to be quite frustrating.

When can I expect your wiki and sample solutions to be complete (e.g., cover all corners of your product?).

I'd also prefer a nice pdf document, like you pulished for 3.9 over a wiki.

Best regards, Rune

One Answer:

I can only say we're working on it. Hopefully most of incomplete parts of the Manual will be finished during this month. Getting the whole framework documented seems really complex issue (there are lots of components, and all of them are much more open then in case with v3.9), so our current goal is to finish the manual for developers using it, and thus we avoid writing about any advanced topics covering low-level platform components.

Concerning .PDF: we're looking for ways of adding conceptual documentation (Wiki) to its .HxS / .Chm help - i.e. something like this one, but more flexible. So it will be done - sooner or later...

And about samples:

  • Currently we're adding ASP.NET sample

  • Sync sample and final version of WPF sample will appear when Sync is implemented (it looks like in August now)

  • Other will be added on appearance of scheduled features.
