Spark ORM compulsory

If i purchase .Net Framwork 4.5 PRO, spark comes as compulsory choice or i can unplug spark and use my own dataaccess layer and still generate code for layers like business, dataaccess, service layer, MVC etc. Please let me know

The Code Generator targets SPARK. 

To rewrite it and use Entity Framework would somewhat defeat the purpose because the whole philosophy is centered around the lightweight architecture of SPARK (in fact, EF would make the resulting code more complex and less performant).

So, to answer your question: Yes, SPARK is mandatory.

Hope this helps.

That would be a lot of work from what I can tell

Are you talking about yanking spark and plugging EF?

I would think your better off with EF to start but I don't see why you couldn't do this

I am in the process of buying your Net Framwork 4.5 PRO and have the same question. What do you mean by it would be a lot of work? I think his question is replacing Spark with EF to do the Code Generation. Can that be easily done? --- Charlie Biggs  Jun 05, 2015
