New Release of Entity Developer with Named SQL Queries Support!
July 18, 2012
Devart is glad to announce the release of
Entity Developer 4.5 with support for named SQL queries and stored procedures
in NHibernate models.
New version of Entity Developer extends NHibernate mapping support - now it allows
creating methods from SQL queries. For this named SQL queries feature of NHibernate
is used. Entity Developer interprets named SQL queries as methods of the model,
for which a helper class containing the corresponding methods will be generated.
Entity Developer allows creating methods returning scalar or entity results or no
result. The named SQL queries feature can also be used for creating methods calling
stored routines. For stored routines, you don't need to write SQL manually, just
specify the name of the routine and Entity Developer will generate the query automatically.
Entity Developer offers you even more if you use database first approach. You can
generate methods from stored routines just by selecting them in the Create Model
Wizard when creating model. It is also possible to create a method in the model
by dragging the corresponding stored procedure or function from Database Explorer
to the diagram area or in the Model Explorer window. Moreover, with the help of
Update From Database Wizard it is possible to add new and modify the existing methods
in the model.
To demonstrate how to implement and use named SQL queries along with many other
kinds of NHibernate mapping, Devart releases NHibernate Mapping Samples application,
which demonstrates 50 different mapping cases, how they are mapped using both fluent
and XML mapping, and their usage. Visit our
NHibernate Mapping Samples blog article to read more about this application
and download it.
