We have created a new Camtasia video that demonstrates a number of important new features in the Entity Data Model Tools December CTP. First, it is now possible to visually map the insert, update, and delete stored procedures for entity types. Additionally, support for function imports allows the mapping of query stored procedures that return primitive types as well as collections of entity types. Finally, we demonstrate the new “Update Model from Database” feature which enables adding new database objects to the model, synchronization of existing objects, such as new table rows, and deletion of removed objects. The video takes a simple, scenario-driven approach, showing a complete end-to-end use of all of these features, from the creation of a new data model to executing code against it and tracking the number of stored procedures run during the run.
