Ihave used myGeneration, and tried dOOdads as well, but I did not like it.

I decided to write my own generation scripts instead.
But if you want to try it, simple download myGeneration, the templates come with the setup.
Then go to templates inside myGeneration, and open a doodads template.
Press F5 to show the parameters dialog (choose your database and such) and press ok, or something like that to generate the code.

I'm not sure if I recall it well, but I remember something like dOOdads was stopping or something, due to it was only outputting .net 1.1 code.
It's way easier to create your own scripts in myGeneration using the MyMeta classes (simply iterate through the tables/columns etc.) and write code.
Please go for partial class outputs, which will help you in renegeration steps.

If you need any help.. feel free

thanks for your response. Let me try your steps. I'm having a hard timewraping my head around this dOOdas when I look at the code...

Not sure why the ex-developers used dOOdads . Wonder why they couldnt use Microsoft's Enterprise Library...doesnt Microsoft have Ent Lib?

Well, the templates I created with MyGeneration were in fact using the Ent Lib.

I created templates for Stored Procedures, Data Access Layer, and DataEntities

Then you can have your DAL refer to your dataEntities, and your BLL references your DAL + dataEntities.

If I recall right, the dOOdads stuff was combining BLL with DAL and output was not partial.

It's easy when you take an existing script and modify it to your needs. You might want to try out .NET tiers (together with code-smith). Looks pretty neat as well, but see what suits your needs. Mostly a slim and lean version is sufficient.
