In midsummer Devart Team is not resting and works up a sweat to deliver you the most up-to-date and profound product. So here it is, the new Entity Developer 4.5 with support for named queries and stored procedures in NHibernate models.
New version of Entity Developer extends NHibernate mapping support, now providing an opportunity to create 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.
Developers who use Database First Approach will gain even more with the new Entity Developer, e.g. an opportunity to 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 the simplicity and utility of the implementation and use of named SQL queries along with many other kinds of NHibernate mapping, Devart Team presents NHibernate Mapping Samples application, which demonstrates 50 different mapping cases, the way they are mapped using both fluent and XML mapping, and their usage. Visit the*NHibernate Mapping Samples*blog article to read more about this application and download it.
