.Net: MySQL and Entity Framework

With the arrival of the MySQL .Net 6.1 Connector you now have an alternative to Microsoft SQL server or SQL Server Express when it comes to using the new Microsoft Entity Framework.

This new connector library is provided free directly from the MySQL website and actually integrates with Visual Studio 2008. Simply download the installer, install and you will now have access to your MySQL databases directly from within the Visual Studio Server Explorer.

By having access to your MySQL databases from the Server Explorer within Visual Studio you can simply drag and drop tables directly onto your Entity model.
