I was recently impressed by the video tutorial that I watched yesterday entitled "Gentle Introduction to XAF". It was amazing to know about this framework though though the video was only done in C# hence discriminating VB.Net users!!!

I would like to know the difference between these terms as used in this great framework.

a. XAF

b. XPO

c. ORM

Thanks

Adrian
