    New and Improved Generator Overview Video

In the video you will see the power of our PLINQO framework which extends Microsoft's Linq to SQL. We also highlight a template that uses a table from the database so you can see how Generator is built right into Visual Studio 2010 .

    Version Control Improvements in CodeSmith Generator 6.0

    • 0 Comments

    • 10 Comments
