Model First development no longer recommended or still possible with NO

May 3, 2013 at 10:29 PM
Hi Guys,
       Love your work but I was disappointed that you don't seem to be offering development with model first any more, and you say that Microsoft is not recommending model first at present.
Perhaps this is as I don't think that data migration with model first is not supported yet with EF?
Can you get back to me ASAP ?
i FINALLY HAVE A GOVERNMENT PROJECT i will be allowed to use NO on now!!!.

Regards,
          Alistair

Hi Alistair

Pleased to hear that you have a real project.

Naked Objects does still work with EF in model first mode - although I'm not sure why you would prefer to use that over code first. (N.B. Code First does not mean that you can't start with the database if you want to - it just means that all your mappings are held in the form of C# code in the form of the 'fluent API' (which is much more manageable - especially on a large project) rather than in an (XML) .edmx file.

I'll contact you off line in case you want to discuss some aspects of the project in private.
