In my opinion , there is nothing like good or bad . Almost all the ORM’s available pretty much does the same . There are pros and cons with each one and selection merely depends on the team , expertise and the company .

Some of the things that can help you to select the ORM can be

  1. Kind of Support and the community help that you can receive for the ORM.
  2. Ease of use
  3. The type Application you are developing and how well the ORM is adapted for it.
  4. Licensing model.
