Hi, I'm using the EF Power Tools Beta 4 together with EF 5.0.0 CodeFirst in VS2010.
The best tool ever especially for all the enterprise teams doing Modeling and Database First...! :)
I have been using EF power tools for quite a while and was excited when beta 4 came out, however, it has a few issues.
Excellent Tool !!!
In MySql database dont save data username, database and password.
Doesn't work with the Express versions...
Reverse engineer needs to be able to select a subset of tables. It also should be able to deal with views that may not have a primary key. Another issue I've been having is that if you export an image or print from the EDMX while using the dark theme, the multiplicity labels (*, 0..1, etc) are rendered as light text and effectively become invisible. The workaround is currently to switch to the light theme, export the image, and then switch back.
I've only just started using EF Power Box, but it reverse engineering my rather large database worked a treat, saved me a tonne of time!
Starting with great features to help develop database more quickly!
Desperately needs the ability to select a subset of tables / views to import, ability to generate code that adheres to common C# conventions, and ability to generate annotation-only code.
Reverse engineer worked on my database of 13 entities that was created model-first in EF 4.0. It even put IsRowVersion() on my timestamp columns!
Doesn't work with ODP.NET 12c .Is there any support for Oracle ?
Great tool -- if that's a workflow you want to enable ... can't get it installed with Visual Studio 2013 Preview yet, unfortunately.
Great tool, but the reverse engineer needs a dialog to select specific tables, I tested the tool on a data base with 1267 tables and have to wait to much time to generate the classes, and after that, delete all the unnecesary files.
Until you can select individual tables to add, I don't find this very useful.
