Sterling is a lightweight object-oriented database implementation for Silverlight and Windows Phone 7 that works with your existing class structures. Sterling supports full LINQ to Object queries over keys and indexes for fast retrieval of information from large data sets.
The goal behind Sterling is to keep it:
- Non-intrusive. You shouldn’t have to change your classes just to persist them.
- Lightweight. As of this writing, the DLL for Sterling is under 70 Kb. No one needs to bloat their project for something as simple as persisting data.
- Flexible. While the core is light, Sterling is designed to handle any serialization task and make it ultra-easy to query databases using LINQ-to-Objects.
- Portable. Sterling is designed to run on both Silverlight 4.0 and the Windows Phone 7.
