Good work. I'm not sure I like the navigation to that Wiki though. It took me a while to figure out how to find the chapters, however the content is very good.

Appears to be a fabio maulo knoll :)

or many nh knolls where every knoll equates to one chapter of a book.

I got a feeling this structure might change in the future ;)

It also could be strange wording / routing on google's side.

Are there any advantages in using NHibernate itself over Castle's ActiveRecord?

Scott White

Josh: Castle's ActiveRecord uses NHibernate. :)

@Josh: ActiveRecord is an abstraction on top of nHibernate. As Joel Spolsky taught us, every abstraction is leaky in it's own way (http://www.joelonsoftware.com/articles/LeakyAbstractions.html).

ActiveRecord abstracts some nHibernate things (session management for instance), which makes it harder to use for certain complex situations. In short: ActiveRecord is easier, nHibernate is more flexible.

wow, awful url, and awkward layout on the site. Is this using Knol for the sake of it?
