EF reverse engineer code first

Post by shatvani » Tue 05 Aug 2014 12:47

I'd like to know which product can help me to generate code first POCO classes from Oracle database? Entity Developer may be my choice? And this product can provide the same functionality like EF to MSSQL for Oracle?

Thank you.

You should install dotConnect for Oracle Proffesional Edition (trial). It includes Entity Developer which can be used for creating Entity Framework models only with Oracle. After installing the provider, right click on your project > Add > New Item > Devart Entity Model. Go through the Create Model Wizard, select database objects, choose the DbContext template (instead of default EntityObject) and set its "Fluent Mapping = True" property. Select designer surface and set the Metadata Artifact Processing property of EntityContextModel to Do Not Generate Mapping Files. Save the model to generate the code.

Is that what you need?
