Entity Developer is a powerful ORM designer for ADO.NET Entity Framework, NHibernate, LinqConnect, and LINQ to SQL. You can use Model-First and Database-First approaches to design your ORM model and generate C# or Visual Basic .NET code for it. It introduces new approaches for designing ORM models, boosts productivity, and facilitates the development of database applications.

Visual ORM Model Designer with Code Generation
Entity Developer allows you to create and edit NHibernate, Entity Framework, LinqConnect, and LINQ to SQL models visually, without typing a line of XML code. It supports creating all kinds of mapping, such as table splitting, mapping entity to several tables, complex types, inheritance hierarchies, creating entities from SELECT statements and methods from SQL code, etc. Code generation is very flexible due to using T4-like templates, allowing virtually anything you may want for code generation. C# and VB code can be generated for your model out-of-the-box, and you may even create your own templates for other programming languages.

Multiple ORM Support
Entity Developer supports NHibernate, Entity Framework, LinqConnect, and LINQ to SQL models. It offers a separate edition for each of the supported ORMs and the Professional Edition supporting all the three ORMs. Entity Developer for NHibernate and Entity Developer for Entity Framework allow designing NHibernate and Entity Framework models. See the Compatibility page for the list of ADO.NET providers, supported for these ORMs. Entity Developer for LINQ to SQL uses Microsoft SqlClient to connect to database. Entity Developer is also included to the professional edition of dotConnect for PostgreSQL, MySQL, Oracle, SQLite, and Salesforce and to LinqConnect.

Powerful Code Generation
Entity Developer provides powerful T4-like template-based code generation framework. It offers you a number of predefined templates for different use cases. They are templates for generating context, entities, and mapping, with support for fluent, attribute, and XML mapping, both persistence aware and persistence ignorant (POCO) entities, support for validation framework for entity property values validation, etc. Additional templates offer functionality of automatic generating MVC Controller and views, Data Transfer Objects with converter classes for entities, Data Annotations metadata classes and other features. All these templates provide a number of settings for rich configuration capabilities, and if these are not enough, you even can create your own templates.
