Entity Framework 5 Upgrade Issues with Upgrade Model from Database RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been using EF 4 against a brownfield database since EF4 was released.  I manually updated some of the strings fields to non-nullable from (None) in the model designer which allowed me to hide some legacy problems without changing the underlying database.

    The problem I have is that in EF5, those manually updated Nullable properties are reset back to the database column's nullable status.  

    Is this intentional?  It seems like a defect to me since EF4+ supported this.  

    If is is supposed to work this way, why are we allowed to change the Nullable property from (None) to False?

    Any suggestions or comments would be great.
