Entity Developer 2.50 Released!
November 23, 2009
Devart is glad to announce the release of Entity Developer
2.50, a designer for modeling and code generation for ADO.NET Entity Framework
and LINQ to SQL for SQL Server. With the help of the tool, you can design an entity
model from scratch or reverse-engineer an existing database, in which case you will
have the classes and relations with just several clicks.
Entity Developer 2.50 was greatly improved. Now
Entity Developer allows viewing and editing data of tables, views, and model entities,
create and execute Entity SQL, LINQ to Entities, and LINQ to SQL queries against
the model, eliminating the need for additional applications and reducing time for
accessing these operations. See
our blog article about working with data for more information.
Code generation for models was completely redesigned. New T4 like template language
allows you to use the full power of C# or Visual Basic in the templates, allowing
virtually anything you may want for code generation. Template editor now provides
syntax highlighting, code completion, and parameter information features. Syntax
highlighting allows you to easily distinguish text and code blocks. See
our blog article about code generation for more information.
The model got two new properties, affecting code generation: File Per Class and
View Generation. File Per Class property allows placing each model class to a separate
file, and View Generation adds code for pre-generating views for Entity Framework
If you wish to provide feedback on the new version, you can do it in our forums or with contact form.
There is also feedback form in the support
zone of the product. We are always glad to hear your comments and take into
account your development needs.
