    I can partly understand your decision to drop the visual designer, but please at least bring back the code generation.

    I am a database oriented person, and in all database related projects I always design my database first.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but with the 2015 Q2 code-only release, I have not found a way to generate a fluent model from an existing database. Is there a way to that without the deprecated visual designer ?

    If so, how ?

    If not, please consider adding that feature. I can't imagine you would drop this feature all together. It's like going back to the stone age (that's where the world is heading anyway now but that's another discussion).


    A slightly feeling let-down customer...

    Hello Mathieu,

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Currently, I would recommend to you to keep Data Access Q1 2015 installed on your development machine and to generate your fluent models through the New Fluent Model wizard. After they are generated you can install the latest Data Access NuGet packages and your model will be functional.

    As for a tool that will perform the code generation without Data Access Q1 2015 being installed on the machine, we are considering a solution in this direction. The feature request about it is available here and your support about it will be appreciated. At the time present, however, I cannot commit to any specific timeframe.

    I am sorry for the inconvenience caused.

    Check out the latest announcement about Telerik Data Access vNext as a powerful framework able to solve core development problems.
