"This is a Power Tool - You must understand it!"
- Incredibly fast creation of an entire web application framework.
- Very tight integration with the back-end database.
- Can connect to just about any of the popular DBMS' (big and small)
- You can do just abount anything you'd want with this tool
- You can add any number of third-pary ASP.NET controls (I use obout.com tools)
- Generates well-structured (maintainable) code
- Flexible licensing (love the monthly sub - no obligations!). The monthly lets you cancel your sub during times that the app is static, and license back up when you need to mod the app.
- Steep learning curve once you get past the basics (unless you're a .net whiz...)
- Proprietary, compiled DLL(s) that requires ISD in order to generate it.
- Sometimes ISD generates too many screens from your database - it tries to be predictable, but sometimes goes a bit overboard with the relationship mapping.
I've been developing systems for over 30 years. I've not seen a tool that can do as much (out of the box) as ISD, yet leaves you with all your options open for customization and integration of other ASP.NET components. I especially like the ability to use other data grid and graph controls (among others) in the tool (obout.com data grid is very nice). In short, this tool saves me weeks *literally* of time in getting applications in front of clients. Don't know of another tool out there with this much power. And no, I have not been paid, or otherwise compensated by ISS in any way to write this review. I do so freely and voluntarily.
