Utilize the full power of the LLBLGen Pro Designer when working with with your entity model:
use reverse-engineering functionality (Database first) or Model first tools at the same time. Easily synchronize your entity model with
the database schemas, define and validate your entity model or create derived models on top of them and much more. You're in control.
Using the powerful template based code generator built into the LLBLGen Pro Designer you can generate code
which uses attribute based mappings or xml mappings. You can switch between them at any time.
The entity model can be used as a basis for one or more derived models (which contain hierarchical definitions of derived elements from entity definitions)
in denormalized form if required. You can use these derived models to produce DTO classes and, optionally, generate persistence code to automatically
persist them as entity instances in your relational databases or document databases.
The code produced by the LLBLGen Pro Designer is carefully architected to be extensible through
extension points, partial classes and partial methods, comes with XmlDoc comments to produce reference manuals, and is fully tested. You can start
writing queries right away.
