"Telerik announced that it is now offering OpenAccess ORM, its object-relational mapping (ORM) tool, free of charge for all 12 database platforms it supports, among them SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, and IBM DB2.
OpenAccess ORM lets you map the objects in an object-oriented domain model to your relational database tables, views, and/or stored procedures, and vice versa. OpenAccess ORM does the mapping within Visual Studio independently of the source code and database and generates the data-access code for an application. OpenAccess ORM operates as a data store-agnostic virtual layer that can be used from within the programming language to access and manipulate data.
We generate the data access code for you!
Telerik OpenAccess will generate the data access layer for your applications after just a few mouse clicks. All you have to do is to create the data model of your application and the tool will do the rest!
It's easy, quick, and powerful.

Reduce development and testing time.
Telerik OpenAccess ORM takes over the mundane tasks of generating the data access code for your .NET application (C# or VB.NET), effectively relieving you from a significant portion of your relational data persistence tasks. The generated code has already been tested extensively by Telerik and conforms the latest object-oriented development standards. By doing the heavy lifting, OpenAccess ORM can save you between 20% and 85% of development and testing time.
We take performance seriously. Just like you.
Telerik's object-relational mapping tool has been designed to help, rather than to intervene. It uses just a few megs of memory on the client, it is extremely efficient when fetching data (even in large data-intensive applications), and comes with many tools and techniques to help you optimize the data access performance even further.
I don't know if this is new news or not, but its new news to me, so... :)
