QuicksandCRUD – Quick Persistence for Prototype Applications

For when you want CRUD quick and don't care how you get it.
QuicksandCRUD is a C# library that allows for quick and dirty CRUD operations and in memory repositories to be added to most C# applications. Save (create or update), get by id, get all and delete are the only supported operations. Reliant on XML Serialization and XML files, if your object will not serialize, QuicksandCRUD will not work for your application. Designed for quickly developing prototypes, QuicksandCRUD is not recommended for production applications.

How it works

Each class that derives from ResourceBase must include the following properties:
//Folder location for xml file store
public override string RESOURCELOCATION { get { return @"Company\"; } }
//Used to determine what is retrived on a get all
public override string RESOURCEKEY { get { return @"Company"; } }
//Used for serialization
public override Type RESOURCETYPE { get { return typeof(Company); } }

The appconfig must contain the following key for the root location of the xml file store
<add key="RootResourceFile" value="..\..\XML\">  

While not recommended for production applications, QuicksandCRUD has allowed me to prototype applications quickly without having to worry about a persistence layer. I have found it to be a useful tool in my developer toolkit.
