EF 4.2 Code First, using an existing database?

Just trying to figure out if this has been solved or not.

I have a database (already created) and i want to let EF CF create the tables that are missing based on the models, is that possible?

I can't delete the database/create a new database for this, i just want it to maintain the tables based on the models).

Something like DropTablesIfModelChanges or similar.


You can do this using EntityFramework.SqlMigrations

It is avaliable using NuGet

Scott Hanselman wrote a nice blog post about that. Entity Framework Code First Migrations
