You can develop ASP.Net and other .Net database driven applications very 
fast using
the RDP tool - www.rdptools.com or www.transcomsoft.com
It reads your database schema and then generates applications for you.
You choose the application from a large list of application templates.
New application templates are easy to create too.
However it is not an opensource product.
