Early-bound Template-based Code Generator

Description

An XrmToolBox plugin that can be used to generate Early-bound code from a CRM Schema using a customisable T4 Template.

Features:
+ Preserved the original CrmSvcUtil structure and logic.
+ Customize the way the code is generated.
-- You get a default T4 template for the code that is generated, with a multitude more features than the official tool (features below).
-- You can rewrite the whole template if you wish for any possible requirements.
+ Replaced the SDK types with .NET types.
+ Generate only what's needed
-- Only choose the entities required.
-- Only the fields required.
+ Additional control
-- Option to use display names of entities and fields as variable names instead of logical names.
-- Override field names inside the tool's UI.
-- Ability to Lock variable names to avoid code errors on regeneration.
+ Support for strongly-typed alternate keys, for entities and Entity References.
+ Add annotations for model validation.
+ Generate metadata.
-- Field logical and schema names.
-- Localised labels.
+ Automatically limit attributes retrieved from CRM on any entity in a LINQ to the ones choosen (filtered) in the tool (check new entity constructors).
+ Many options to optimise generated code size even further.
+ Generate concrete classes for CRM Actions.
+ Support bulk relation loading.
-- Support filtering on relation loading.
