I'm searching for a thorough guide on utilizing POCO with the Entity Framework without the designer and MySQL as the back-end. I'm searching for material that goes over characteristics in some detail, such as how to convert a database table or field name to a different class or field name. Additionally, I need C#, not VB. Anyone have knowledge of similar tutorials?
You can also look at this alternative query for EF with MySQL:
Using Entity Framework and MySQL
You must essentially get a connection from MySQL and proceed normally from there.
For POCOs, you can either utilize the designer, which is what is typically in EF 4, or you may write the mappings, in which case I suppose you use the newly released EF 4 Futures CTP 5.
If the intended reading is the POCO template in EF CTP5 or default EF 4 POCO support, they should be helpful:

If you are utilizing the code exclusively, you should be aware that it is in pre-release and has certain working-with difficulties.
