Very interesting

This looks very interesting.. but i'm not sure what it is. A tutorial will be very much of help.

As far as I can tell, it is a model that supports storing entities and their relationships and the history of all entities in a predefined set of tables (5 tables). 

Entity relationships are not done by using a simple reference but by using queries. There is also the concept of successors and predecessors.

The example model is pretty big for beginners with this framework. Maybe a model with 3 entities (Customer, Order, OrderLine) will be more clear. 

But very interesting.

Was it the UpdateControls dependency? Sorry about that. I've checked in those assemblies as part of the project now.

The walkthrough of this model is at But I agree that I could do with a simpler one. I chose this model because it demonstrates many of the patterns of historic modeling. But something simpler might be more approachable.
