Implementing and testing mapping code with AutoMapper

I was thinking some months ago that it would be great to have a property mapper that eliminates tedious mapping code . I'm very happy that Jimmy Bogard and his team just have published a framework called AutoMapper that resolves that issue. I haven't tested it yet but the idea looks promising.

Why would I use AutoMapper?
  • In order to implement better encapsulation and layering with less amount of coding
  • In order to unit-test mapping code using a simple 'Mapper.AssertConfigurationIsValid()'
