C# Code Generator

We are looking for a C# code generator. We want to take our database schema and convert it into a web application.

Does anybody have any experience with tools like Iron Speed, RapTier, or TierDeveloper? Any opinions about these tools or other similar tools?

I would appreciate any advice.

Thanks!

I second the recommendation for CodeSmith.

I do databases, and generate both the SQL stored procs, and the entity classes to access the databasse with CodeSmith. Damn cool tool when you use it right.

I presume that you've considered, and ruled out, typed datasets?  Incidently, I saw an on-line article about customising the code generation that sits behind typed datasets.  I thought the idea of retaining the XSD files as object definitions, but changing the generated code was interesting.  The result need not even be a dataset, although that level of customisation would take more work.

I also posted just posted this link in another thread, it might be relevant to your situation too: http://weblogs.asp.net/fbouma/archive/2004/10/09/240225.aspx

You might want to take a look at http://www.codegeneration.net This is a resource site with lots of information about code generators. I am sure you'll find something suitable there.

I use Visible Developer www.visible.com/Products/Developer/ for most of our projects. There are things not to like, but I've been quite happy with both the results and the support.

Take a look at Deklarit - they should have a trial version that you can try out
