Exploring the data lair

Arm yourself with the DDS Explorer and venture into the dark bowels of your EPiServer CMS 6 site.

Find what stores there are.

Learn the kinds and sizes of shelves in the store

Take a peek at what lies in store for you.

And change it!

Download DDS Explorer (Take care not to do anything nasty with this)

In summary

The dynamic data store is a great new feature. The setup cost is almost zero and using it is so easy you almost forget you're using a database. The (almost) fixed schema operation also promises a nice deployment scenario.

Look out for a much improved meta API in the next version:

var stores = StoreDefinition.GetAll();

foreach (var store in stores)
foreach (var inlineMapping = store.InlineMappings)

.. etc
