LINQ, C# 3.0 - Something looks familiar

Well I actually, finely, took a little time and looked at a good article on LINQ and how it will be used in C# 3.0. And in doing so, the concept, how it interacts with the CLR and data, it looks VERY similar to something us X++ folks have been doing for nearly 8 years now... working with a data model, and data model variables for tables, and using SQL Like Statements within X++ to fill and work with those variables, which represent table objects from a database.

I mean you can't blame them, in fact I am SO glad they are finally, really getting to the point to where LINQ will be close to what X++ can offer. Of course it's not as knowledgeable as X++ is, but then a Object Tree would need to exist for the C# application, in order to make use of it... *gears spinning*

I can see how this move, and the sure to be robust LINQ is paving the way for X++ and Dynamics AX to be developed from Visual Studio, and a native .Net application. I would like to see how the Object Tree, labels, and the layering is handled though. Still, for those of us that develop in C# when X++ is not the language this is such a wonderful new technology for working with XML, Object, and Data, that brings C# closer to what X++ offers us!

Check out the direct link this post header points to on MSDN, and Check back soon!

If I'm not mistaken there is another technology that Microsoft is touting that will bridge the gap and it's called DLINQ. From what I understand it's really a subset of LINQ, the idea being that you could create a set of classes that would map to a real-world database. These objects would then be queryable via LINQ natively much more akin to X++.
