CodeFluent Entities is an advanced model-first code generator optimized for the Microsoft platform, which integrates itself into Visual Studio 2008/2010/2012/2013 and allows developers to generate components of all your application layers, such as database scripts (e.g. T-SQL, PL/SQL, MySQL, Pg/SQL), code (e.g. C#, VB), web services (e.g. WCF, JSON/REST) and UIs (e.g. Windows 8, ASP.NET, MVC, SharePoint, WPF). The code generation process is model-first and continuous: from your declarative model, a meta-model will be inferred which code generators will then translate into code. Over 20 code generators (a.k.a. “producers”) are provided “out of the box” and can be combined to create your own application following your desired architecture, using your desired technologies.
Since your application development is driven from this model, your business logic is decoupled from the technology and allows you to absorb changes faster and smoother: apply changes in your model to update all your layers consistently or add/switch technology by changing your used code generators. CodeFluent Entities is designed for the .NET platform and empowers users to streamline developments on major Microsoft platforms and technologies such as SQL Server, C#, VB.NET, WCF, ASP.NET, WPF, Windows 8, SharePoint, SQL Azure, third-party databases and more.
CodeFluent Entities is available under the following editions :
- Personal edition: Totally FREE, unlimited in time, and full-featured for personal applications and academic usage! This version is limited to models up to 50 entities. evaluation purposes.
- Professional edition: Ideal edition to start with CodeFluent Entities, commercial use is allowed and all common features are available: design your model in Visual Studio 2008/2010/2012/2013, generate a SQL Server database from it as well as your full featured (data binding, paging, sorting, validation, concurrency, etc.) .NET classes (C# or VB.NET).
- Enterprise edition: it’s a super-set of the Professional edition as it includes extra code generators (“producers”) which will allow you to generate WCF contracts, services and proxy, ASP.NET web sites, WPF smart-clients, documentation, and more.
- Ultimate edition: Full-featured edition for commercial use, including advanced generators such as Oracle Database, SharePoint or Office, as well as official “out of the box” aspects (e.g. data localization and middle of word text search).

Bonus Deal: Free White Paper: CodeFluent Entities vs. Entity Framework
How is CodeFluent Entities any different from Entity Framework?
Both tools abstract and hide the database from the developer. Entity Framework is an object-relational mapper (ORM). CodeFluent Entities is a great alternative that provides object-relational continuity and automation of both .NET code and database scripts while maintaining control. Thus, you get the best of both worlds with maximum flexibility.
Many developers are looking for an alternative to Entity Framework. This is why SoftFluent wrote a white paper comparing it with CodeFluent Entities.
