Subject:MySQL for Visual Studio 1.2.1 beta has been released
View as plain text  
Dear MySQL users,

MySQL for Visual Studio is a product including all of the Visual Studio
integration previously available as part of Connector/Net. The 1.2.1
version is a beta release of this product which is feature complete but
still can contain minor bugs and is not suitable for production
environments.

This version is appropriate for use with MySQL Server versions 5.5-5.6.
MySQL Server 5.7 is also compatible but not fully supported yet.

As this is a beta version the MySQL for Visual Studio product can be
downloaded only by using the product standalone installer at this link
http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/windows/visualstudio/

The 1.2.1 version includes the following new features:

- A new MySQL Project Wizard for creating Windows Forms applications.
- A new MySQL Project Wizard for creating ASP.NET MVC 3/4 web
   applications.
- A new option in web configuration tool for the ASP.NET Personalization
   Provider (this feature requires Connector/Net 6.9).
- A new option in web configuration tool for the ASP.NET Site Map
   Provider (this feature requires Connector/Net 6.9).


MySQL Project Wizard for Windows Forms
--------------------------------------
This wizard automates the generation of a .NET Windows Forms Application
that is connected to a MySQL data source and supports CRUD operations. A
Typed DataSet or an Entity Framework Model can also be generated to link
the Application to the MySQL Database. In this version only one table
can be selected in the wizard. This limitation will be replaced with a
multiple tables wizard in the 1.2.2 upcoming version.

Within the Wizard the user can select one of three options for the View
type:

Single Layout: A form that contains one control by each existing column
in the table with navigation controls and that allows CRUD operations.
All controls can include data typed validations for Numeric types and
Datetime types.

Grid layout: A form with a Grid that contains navigation controls.

Master-Detail: A form with a single controls layout for the Parent table
and a grid to navigate in the child table.

Supported with C# or Visual Basic language.

This feature requires Connector/Net 6.7.5, 6.8.3 or 6.9.x.

--------------------------------------
The ASP.NET MVC Project Wizard is available at the Visual Studio New
Project dialog, either at the MySql category or by filtering by name. It
also can be accessed by using the MySQL Toolbar inside Visual Studio.

This wizard automates the generation of an ASP.NET MVC 3/4 application
that includes the MySQL Membership configuration to manage ASP.NET
authentication. The login and create user views are generated by the
wizard and it also includes the generation of multiple browsable views
for each one of the tables selected for the application generation.

The generation of the MVC items is done also with the creation of an
Entity Framework data model either with Entity Framework version 5 or 6
depending on the user's selection.

Supported with C# or Visual Basic language.
