I have a question about Entity Framework 5. I generated this nice model from my (MS SQL Server) database, for example a table called 'User'. The table contains not nullable fields.

Now in the old(er) versions of EF, objects would be generated with a static CreateEntityName function. In this case User.CreateUser(). The function accepts arguments for each required field in the object.

Entity Framework 5 DID generate the objects for me (from database), but I miss these static functions. The objects contain just properties which are not decorated by any attribute. They (by the way) do contain collections of other objects when the database contains foreign key relations.

Am I doing something wrong is is this just the way EF5 works? I did like the static create functions!
