Which application Framework

We are on VB.NET 2005 using sql server 2000.
We are on the verge of a major application development project.

We are looking for an application framework,
We have looked at several, Mere Mortals, VBexpress and PDSA (Paul Sheriff and associates) application Framework, and
R. Lhotka (CSLA.NET).

But not many people have talked about application frameworks on the newsgroups.

Should we even buy one, are any of them any good?
If so, which one? It is hard to tell from the marketing hype.

Thanks in Advance,

Laurence

You should first determine how you want to work, how the framework
would look like if YOU would have written it. Example: do you want to
work with tabular data + SQL or do you want to work with entity classes
and an O/R mapper core? If you think about business logic/rules, how do
you want to have it implemented in your application?

This is very important, as it drives your decision which framework to
use for your application: it's not advisable to use a framework which
behaves / has a philosophy which doesnt' match your way of how you want
to work.
