How to transition from Code First to Production Code? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to decide the best solution for managing client database changes.  My application is coded (so far) using EF 4.1 Code First.  Once I deloy the application (via .MSI install) to a client machine, it's not clear what the best methodology is for updating the database with changes.  For example, after releasing version 1.0 (and installing it on many client machines), v2.0 is ready for release and includes some database changes.  What's the best method to update those databases on the next installation?  Assuming VS2010, etc, does anyone have a recommendation for this?
