Dbml not updating
However, I've found the following techniques assist in getting a correct refresh: 1.Add a new parameter to the sproc, then do perform the above. This appears to be a more solid solution and the one I currently perform when the all of the above fail.The Code Generator is a LINQ to SQL component that translates DBML files to Visual Basic, C#, or XML mapping files.The DBML file must be valid against the following schema definition as an XSD file.
You will use the Object Relational Designer to create a class that represents the database table that contains the values.
This is partly due to the Query Execution Plans which get created on SQL Server, been able to control when these Execution Plans get re-created, and also optimising the query based on database statistics, which isn't something LINQ to SQL deals with.
Also as Microsoft have said they're not going to be providing any more updates for LINQ to SQL, they're concentrating on the Entity Framework, it seems like a technology which will fade away.
You'll be able to see exactly when it has a fresh version by looking whether the newly generated file contains the new parameter.
As you probably know Microsoft started its journey in ORM land with 2 frameworks: Linq to SQL, a lightweight ORM with some nice features and good performance but tightly coupled to SQL Server and Entity Framework which started as an ugly beast but is now transformed into a good, performant Enterprise ready ORM solution.
