OK, here we go, after reading a couple of related questions, I haven’t ended into a real productive solution for my thoughts.
As we all developers creating applications, then these apps going into production, the client after couple of days demands additional features.
Great! you open your database through Server Explorer, create tables, add columns, maybe changing datatypes and then updating your model from database, nice it works everything OK!
Now you release the project with your way (InstallShield, InstallAware, VS Setup Project…).
You could e.g. have a schema compare tool, get the script, try it (it’s working) and then add it to “InstallShield” or another installer supports this job!
I have been searching though if there is a way for entity framework to realize the changes, or if there is an out of the box way to update the schema based on your model???
In general is there Entity Framework 4 Schema Change support?
