NHibernate on the cloud: SQL Azure

time to read 1 min | 130 words

I just finished running the NHibernate test suite against SQL Azure. I am very happy to say that It Just Works*.


Hat tip for Microsoft for managing to create an environment so similar to that of SQL Server under a drastically different conditions.

* The only caveat is that some Schema Export scripts fails on SQL Azure, it seems like drop table has some slightly different behavior with SQL Azure, it does not drop the table immediately, but there seems to be some delay before it actually happens (especially if you use a different connection to check for the existence of the table).
