ExecuteSprocAccessor is slow

I have used older versions of entlib and have used ExecuteReader and then mapped the properties to my objects by myself.

In entlib 5.0 there is ExecuteSprocAccessor wich makes life a bit easier, and auto-maps the properties. The problem for me is that it is 5 times slower.

The old ExecuteReader (returning only 1 row) takes <1ms to do everythin. The new ExecuteSprocAccessor takes 4-5ms.

Is this what I should expect?


var db = EnterpriseLibraryContainer.Current.GetInstance<Database>("connectionstring") as SqlDatabase;
var myObject = db.ExecuteSprocAccessor<MyObject>("mySP", new object[] { param1, param2 }).SingleOrDefault();

The accessor has to do a bunch of work to generate the output mapper it uses. If you recreate the accessor every time, you end up paying that construction cost every time. Can you create the accessor once up front and reuse it instead?

Thank you. It worked perfect.

Does this mean that using the ExecuteSprocAccessor is not appropriate for disconnected (WCF) applications due to the construction cost of the accessor?
