Currently, domain build modes other than Recreate are not implemented. Upon domain building, tables always get rebuilt and any data is lost.

The source code clearly explains why

switch (context.Domain.Configuration.BuildMode)
        case DomainBuildMode.Perform:
        case DomainBuildMode.PerformStrict:
            throw new NotImplementedException();
        case DomainBuildMode.Recreate:
        case DomainBuildMode.BlockUpgrade:
            throw new NotImplementedException();
            throw new NotImplementedException();

while BuildPerform() simply does BuildRecreate()

public override void BuildPerform()
    // todo: Implement
    // throw new System.NotImplementedException();

When is this going to be fixed? -- at least, is this a known issue planned for implementation?

IMHO, I would assign this an urgent priority... thnx

One Answer:

This isn't a bug: we really don't support schema evolution now.

We're going to eliminate this issue by the end of March 2009. LINQ and SE are of the top priority for us now.
