LinqExtender is a toolkit for building custom LINQ providers. It provides an abstracted layer over the original IQyeryable and IQueryProvider implementation and provides a simplified syntax tree.
Download the DevelopmentPack.zip to get going for building custom providers. Dont forget to take a look at the readme.txt.
- VSI installer that will create an extender startup project.
- LinqExtender.dll , if you want to do things on your own.
- Example custom provider, which is OpenLinqToSql ORM that works with Sql server.
