ValueInjecter looks to be exactly what I am looking for, except that I havent seen any examples of mapping from a list to a list "automagically" (ie, little or no code to write).
Heres the scenario, which I think would be very common. I have a Data Access layer, using EF Code First. I define my entities in the DAL, with all the attributes that make sense for a CF type model (like MaxLength, NotMapped, etc). I dont
want to dirty the rest of the app with these classes - they are only for persistence.
Out in the Business Logic layer(s) I have domain objects, pretty much one Domain object for each DAL entity. The two sets of classes are very similar, but not exactly the same. I want to map back and forth easily.
Quite often my DAL will query the datastore, and get a list of DAL entities that I then want to return to the Business Logic caller as Domain Entities.
So can I do something like
IEnumerable<DomainType> dt = new IEnumerable<DomainType>();
IEnumerable<DALType> dal = new IEnumerable<DALType>();
