What does the "Pluralize or singularize produced object names" option mean?

ado.net ado.net-entity-data-model c#-4.0 entity-framework

Question

When setting up a new Entity data Model, there is an option to

[x] Pluralize or singularize generated object names

I have noticed this is an option in LINQ as well. Also, now that I am studying the ADO.NET entity framework, I noticed it also has 'DEFAULT' to 'pluralize or singularize generated object names'

What is the result of not checking/allowing this option when setting up the 'Entity Data Model'.

What Advantages/Disadvantages/issues will I face by making a selection one way or the other?

Accepted Answer

No problem at all, except that you'll probably want to do it manually. Usually, you want entity names singular and entity set names plural.

If you check Pluralize or singularize generated object names, the set in the class context.cs genrated by EF will be named in the format:

public virtual DbSet<SomeTableName> SomeTableNames { get; set; }

if not check, it'll be named:

public virtual DbSet<SomeTableName> SomeTableName { get; set; }

Advantages/Disadvantages IMHO:

I would like to see collection set be named ending with 's', such as dbset colleciton of Employee class of Employee Table named Employees, so I'll check the option. But I guess maybe someone would like to treat the dbset as a table, so he/she would like to name it same as table name Employee.
