Entity Developer 4.3 is released!

Post by Devart » Thu 15 Mar 2012 16:42

Dear users,

Devart is delighted to introduce the new version of Entity Developer with support for Visual Studio 11 Beta. Now you can use Entity Developer in development of applications targeting Windows 8 in the newest version of the Microsoft IDE.

Designing ORM models became even more convenient and intuitive with possibility to copy, cut, and paste conceptual model objects on diagrams and in Model Explorer. You can also drag properties between entities. The new version of Entity Developer also offers a number of improvements for NHibernate model development.


Here is the complete list of Entity Developer 4.3.152 features:
  • Visual Studio 11 Beta is supported
  • The copy/cut/paste functionality is added for objects of the conceptual part of a model
  • The possibility to drag&drop properties between classes in Model Explorer is implemented
  • The "HeaderTimestampVersionControlTag" generation template option is added for improving integration with version-control systems
  • The bug with retrieving database metadata on Windows Azure is fixed
  • The bug with generating mappings for many-to-many association of entity to itself is fixed
NHibernate support
  • The merging of crossing foreign key columns in Table Per Hierarchy (TPH) when generating schema is added
  • The merging of crossing columns in Table Per Hierarchy (TPH) when generating schema is added
  • The warnings if merging of crossing columns in Table Per Hierarchy (TPH) when generating schema cannot be done correctly is added
  • The new "Unimplemented" extended property, which allows disabling code generation, is added for navigation properties
  • The "Generate" extended property, which allows disabling code generation for entity properties and complex type properties, is renamed to "Unimplemented" now
  • The default behaviour is changed: Discriminator Value is set to Not Null for base abstract classes by default now
  • The output order of the "Class" drop-down list elements for the "End 2" in the Association Editor is changed: classes and complex types are grouped to the corresponding groups
  • The bug with escaping single quote character when setting comments for database objects is fixed
  • The bug with adding "virtual" key word when generating private properties of entity class is fixed
  • The bug with calculation of NOT NULL columns in Table Per Hierarchy (TPH) when any of the descendants does not have such column is fixed
  • The bug with the DDL generation for the base non-abstract class when using the Table Per Concrete Type inheritance is fixed
Entity Framework support
  • The bug with generating code when using stored procedures with multiple result set with the POCO Entity and Self-Tracking Entity templates is fixed
  • The bug with setting StoreGeneratedPattern to Identity for foreign key property of the child class when creating an association is fixed
