Product integrated with Visual Studio that generates foundations of .NET applications, such as database scripts, source code, web services and UIs.

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 obtain 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.

- Integration with Visual Studio 2008/2010/2012
- Supports SQL Server (T-SQL), Oracle (PL/SQL), MySQL, PostgreSQL
