Linq Synchronizer

7 10 2008

The first time I was using Linq To SQL, I was frustrated by the fact VS2008 did not integrated the more simple fonctionnality called : “Synchronize DBML Shema with Database”. Just removing my classes from DBML Shema and perform a Drag&Drop from Server Explorer to schema was to much for me ^^.

So I wrote a simple VS 2008 plug-in which allow with 2 clics a synchronization between my database and My DBML Schema.

Linq Overview

23 09 2008

During my migration from .NET 2.0 to .NET 3.0/3.5, my first tought was : ‘With .NET 3.5, I can used Linq To SQL and stop to bore me with all the code generation tools”. I don’t want to crush the glory of tools like Raptier or Code Smith, but an ORM produce by Microsoft can be better in generation time(class generation and integration) and simplicity. It was true(for common uses). But better than that. Linq offers many others functionalities(strongly typed, composite queries, relashionship between objects and many more). And I began to forget all about others problems when the Graal was not here…

After a month of research, I have started to write a document on my Linq feedback and I share it today 🙂
