I am trying to convert my C# test project to X#. I read posts by Phil Hepburn on his EF projects. I was also able to download his solutions. They will come in handy. Thank you, very much Mr. Hepburn. It seem his projects are on Entity Framework code first. My team already have our SQL Server database.
My question is how would I create the EDMX in XSharp? Under C# the wizard starts with "ADO.Net Entity Data Model". I can't find that feature under X#. If anyone have done it, I would appreciate the steps to create the EDMX. Thank you.
Yes, the only time I did this in the past was in C# I seem to recall.
Well, if us guys are in a rush to make progress we could always use a C# project in our solution and make the Classes required - then have these in a C# class library which we then access from our X# business oriented code.
The above should work well enough - BUT - if you intend to make regular or frequent changes to the created classes then waiting for a way to create our own X# classes may be a better approach. SO we don't then have bits of C# code "here there and everywhere".
In Vulcan when I used EF6 and LINQ for Cologne samples in the past, I used to make a 'thin' DAL (data access layer) which was a C# class library. It worked okay but was a little restricting for making changes. But at least allowed me to write the rest in xBase syntax.
If I were you, and it is possible for you to do so, I would wait for Robert's promised update features - sometime in the future.
When the new feature is available I intend to add some sections to a 'ClickStart' eVolume so that we have some code and syntax to follow, for future samples and apps.
