Is there a way to setup Domain to generate views (like in Do 3.X) ?

This would be useful to maintain application : let's suppose your application (which uses DO.net) is crashing and you want to access the database with a GUI (SQL Server Management Studio) to change entities to get it working again : views can a time saver if you have a complex model (like we do).

I was thinking it would not be too difficult to create the views manually using TypeInfo (and its subclasses).

But if I can get them from Query.All<t>(), it's event better.

So here is the question : is there a programmatic way to get the sql for Query.All<t>() ?

Well, that's not quite so easy, when you don't know the internals of DataObjects 4 code. ;)

I've not been able to extract just the SQL command text from this (interesting) ToString() (and I dont' want to parse the result text ;) ) . Well that's not that important for us : this can wait.

Unfortunately the answer is no, as DO4 doesn't use views for queries as DO3 did, we even haven't implemented the functionality for creating and maintaining views.

So the only possibility I could suggest for now is to make this as an add-on to DO4.

You can also create views manually - from SQL queries executed for Query.All<t>().

One Answer:

See Console Sample and this method: http://goo.gl/0o6K

It must print underlying SQL for queries sent by DO4. If there are parameters, everything becomes pretty complex; but if there are no parameters, it must be easy to extract SQL from such IQueryables.
