Go to the complete details ...
Since Data Access Q2 2015, Telerik deprecated visual designer and Visual Studio tools for their ORM. Entity Framework developers also abandoned visual model designer in favour of code only mapping solution. However, there are a lot of users, who prefer visual ORM model development. With the new Entity Developer 6.0 version, Telerik Data Access and Entity Framework users can work with their models visually again, while enjoying all the benefits of the latest ORM versions.
Entity Developer fully supports database-first and model-first approaches, updating of model from the database and database from the model. It offers all the necessary tools for visual creating ORM models and generating code for context, entities, and mapping. For Telerik Data Access, Entity Developer supports import of existing Telerik Data Access visual designer models (*.rlinq) to make migration easier.
With a number of T4 templates for common use cases, it offers advanced code generation for Telerik Data Access and Entity Framework Core. It offers lots of features that were not available in original Telerik Data Access visual designer: model refactoring, much more convenient visual editors, LINQ query execution against Telerik Data Access models, more enhanced model generation from the database,
