- can be used by the developers and testers to create their manual test data.
- developers may focus first on important business features, as simple CRUD screens can be created easily.
Entity Framework Migrations are handled from the package manager console in Visual Studio.
The usage is shown in various tutorials, but I haven’t found a complete list of the commands available and their usage, so I created my own. Enables Migrations by scaffolding a migrations configuration class in the project.
- developers may copy certain portions of the generated code, saving them time on writing repetitive code.
Dynamic scaffolding means there is no need to generate code, as the functionality is generated at runtime. The behavior is complete, including field validations and optimistic lock checking.
Scaffolding is similar with what is used in building houses and other structures.
The concept is to build temporary structures that will help the team build the real structure later.
Here are some advantages of scaffolding in software development.
Specifies the name of the assembly which contains the Db Context class to use.
Use this parameter instead of Context Project Name when the context is contained in a referenced assembly rather than in a project of the solution.
If you prefer to use convention, just create a controller with the same name as the model, and set scaffold property to true: Edit form of a table record. This quick approach is ideal if you are only interested in having working screens and no need to customize anything.
Since dynamic scaffolding is generated at runtime, it has limitations.
