NHProf is a great too for profiling a NHibernate application. It is powerful and easy to use.

I used it for a long time, but recently I ran into troubles when I tried to capture DB queries in my newly started web application using NHibernate 3.0.

 NHibernate Workbench is a “HQL Intellisense thing”.

 

The current version is just able to load an existing mapping assembly, a configuration, help us to write an hql query, submit it to NH and see some results.

NHibernate is popular in Open-source community, fully featured, mature ORM but the way to config mappings in XML files (.hbm.xml files) is not comfort.

I would prefer to write mappings in strongly typed C# code and enjoy from easy refactoring, improved readability and more concise code.

 

Fluent NHibernate resolves this issue and provides alternative to NHibernate's standard XML mapping files - fluent, XML-less, compile safe.

NHibernate gives you many alternative APIs for querying database. There is HQL, which is similar to SQL, Linq to NHibernate and finally ICriteria.
