It’s still Entity Framework, but easier!
PLINQO can generate your EDMX, entity classes, and query logic in seconds. It then allows you to safely regenerate that code at anytime, thus synchronizing your EDMX with the database while still intelligently preserving custom changes. PLINQO is a replace and enhance alternative for Entity Framework that brings the best practices, optimizations, and convenience of the PLINQO frameworks to Entity Framework.
