TierDeveloper is a Rapid Application Development (RAD) tool / code generator that helps you develop real life applications in record time. TierDeveloper is an object to relational mapping code generator that lets you map, generate, and maintain 50% of your .NET application code, namely your business and data objects. Use these objects in ASP.NET, Windows Forms, console and Windows Services apps.
oper is an object-to-relational mapping and code generation tool. It allows you to quickly develop real-life complex .NET database applications. Any .NET application that requires a relational database will benefit greatly from TierDeveloper
