I've two small feature requests:

Add two overloads: Now we have

public T GetProperty<T>(string fieldName)
public void SetProperty<T>(string fieldName, T value)

Those overloads will be useful in reflection scenarii, where it is not possible to define type in code but a type object is available

public object GetProperty(string fieldName, Type t)
public void SetProperty(string fieldName, object value, Type t)

Be compatible with Structure IE be able to call :

person.SetProperty<string>("Address.Street", "1 foo road")

One Answer:

Hello olorin,

the first one is already done: use Entity[string fieldName] indexer for getting and setting values.

As for the second one, we decided not to support such kind of syntax as it lead to possible business logic violation (I mean setting structure field value without even instantiating of structure instance which might contain arbitrary logic & behavior, etc.).
