Reviews for this release

I initially rated this product to 4 stars because of some annoying glitches/crashes while designing the entities. It took me some time to cool down and realize that for a beta 2 version, the few problems i encountered are not such a big thing. Actually my expectations were so high because one can see upfront that this is a first-class piece of software, a swiss army knife in each developer's belt.

Absolutely remarkable software. This is what every developer wants to write, but doesn't. Any choice of business object layer, any choice of UI framework, any data access technology. Truly outstanding! For an encore, how about making a Flex UI option! :)

It is a delicious piece of software. From my pov, this is the way software will be developed in a near future. In fact Microsoft will promote MDA/MDD in Visual Studio 2010 so I amb very glad about it. Now I am using Andro MDA (Java Enterprise Edicion MDA) and I think this is much usable and powerful.

Ability to create and edit the molds and T4 templates make this development tool worth its weight in diamond encrusted gold!!! I can see hours shaved off every project in the coming year and the blossoming of community mold development.
