CodeFluent Entities: Import SQLite databases

Starting with CodeFluent Entities 669 available here, you can import SQLite databases into CodeFluent Entities models Smile

Several ways to import your existing database:

  • Option #1: From the Solution Explorer, right-click on your project and click “Import An Existing Database or Model…”,
  • Option #2: From the Server Explorer, drag and drop tables from your database onto your surface (this won’t work for SQLite unless you have added the SQLite Visual Studio tools I guess…),
  • Option #3: From the Visual Studio toolbar (builds 661 and upper), open the “CodeFluent Entities” menu and click on “Import An Existing Database or Model…

Whichever option you choose, the same wizard will open and it now contains a new importer: SQLite.

  • CodeFluent Entities (build 669 or upper),
  • The SQLite NET Data Provider accessible by CodeFluent Entities so it can connect and import the database to your model. To do so place the System.Data.SQLite.dll in CodeFluent Entities’ installation directory (%ProgramFiles(x86)%\SoftFluent\CodeFluent\Modeler). This provider is downloadable from here: http://system.data.sqlite.org. We suggest you take the “Precompiled Statically-Linked Binaries for 32-bit Windows”, bundle version.
