Migrate from NHibernate to EF

Post by PeterM » Wed 23 Apr 2014 13:42

Hi,

I'd like to know if there is a direct option to move from NH to EF using Entity Developer Pro or if someone might have a best practice to do so.

Please open your NHibernate model (*.hbml), run the Update Database From Model wizard. Then create a new Entity Framework model (*.edml), run the Update Model From Database wizard, add the needed template in the Templates node of Model Explorer. This should be enough.

Does this apply to all migrations between supported platforms?

Yes, Update To Database / Update From Database are implemented in all supported ORMs.
