Just to inform you, CslaExtension Beta1 for EF is available for download.

CslaExtension is a Visual Studio extension that adds custom properties to a EF model, and a custom T4 template that generates CSLA classes. 

Key features:

- generation of CSLA classes from EF model

- properties

- business rules

- relations / navigation properties

- collections

- many things to come...

We've uploaded a new version of CslaExtension on Codeplex. Now you can generate classes for Silverlight projects.

Is anyone here using CslaExtension? We would be happy to get some feedback from you.

I've been using this one and it is top notch.  Definitely worth a look.  I've been using it with Oracle and Devart drivers and it works great.
