– Michael Freidgeim Jun 23 '12 at Tried the first method and it worked. – Muhammedh Jun 26 '14 at Huagati DBML/EDMX Tools integrates with Visual Studio and adds useful new functionality to the built-in designers for Linq-to-SQL and Entity Framework in Visual Studio.

LINQ to SQL is object relational model and file generates the class file for all kind of Create, read, update and delete (CRUD) through the mapping mechanism.

Ideally this should allow us to enable it for WCF Service.

It turns out that team B deleted a few columns from a table. There is also a search functionality in the entity designer model browser that would fulfill another of your requests.

If the whole database is not "ready" then the developer needs to be able to "exclude" certain objects from the update process. We've also added the ability to color entities.

Team B has been waiting for someone to update the EDMX, too. See this issue too which would potentially alleviate the problem:https://connect.microsoft.com/Visual Studio/feedback/details/532950/edmx-designer-sub-diagrams The only thing is, I really really hope we don't have to wait 2 or more years for the next release of Visual Studio in order to have this addressed. And wouldn't it be nice if I could right-click a table/entity and add new "placeholder" columns that did not map back to the data model? And wouldn't it be nice if I could find items in the designer just by typing a few characters. But it could also apply a filter as I type against items that don't Start With the characters I am typing. Third party workaround: see the ' Model Comparer' feature in Huagati DBML/EDMX Tools: you control over exact the issues mentioned in the description text for this suggestion...

As you say, it's a complete nightmare in a team scenario where multiple people can be making changes.

That is, productivity gains must be considered when weighing the value of a product.
