comment Separation of retrieving data and business objects between DAL and BLL Layers
@JDT The ORM (EF in this case) returns entity classes that represent, typically, one database table per class. This is usually similar to, but not necessarily the same as, the domain classes. Maybe you are just saying that it is ok to use ORM classes as domain classes? I have read in a number of places that this is a no-no.

@JDT I'm not sure what you mean, I am using Entity Framework and having the exact same problem. As I understand it, you're not supposed to use your ORM as domain objects, so where is the translation made?

comment How would I implement a “self-destruct” feature into the free trial version of my software?
When you say "successful results", I believe you mean nobody has produced a trial version software which contains all the code for the full version that absolutely cannot be hacked to be used as a full version. What if success is defined as producing trial software that time-limits use of the software for 95% of its users (the ones that make litte or no effort to cheat) and results in a 5% purchase rate? Certainly that has been achieved before.
