Make it easier to map MEST scenario's between the entities and the poco's
It's rather confusing and complex trying to map entities (the table/view representations that were added to the EF Designer) to a single POCO.
Currently, if we wish to have a MEST scenario, we need to manually code this mapping in various places. Now, manually coding is not really a big deal .. it's just that there's a number of quirks and tricks that make this process frustrating and a bit confusing.
It would be extremly appreciated (and more productive) if the mapping of these Entites on the designer, to their POCO, could be done visually IN the designer, instead of having to go into the code and making the multiple changes in multiple places.
Any operational DB that is well designed will have these horizontal splits, it is the simplest way to keep the operational system response times low, while still ensuring auditing and slowly changing dimensions, it would be a grate addition.
