Pluggin NHibernate into Visual Studio

OK, so you’ve managed to work with NHibernate as well as with the hbm-files; respect!

But after looking at Visual Studio 2008, and at what ease you can create some domain-model using Linq to SQL …

But wait! NHibernate Plugin offers a visual aid to get your mappings done.

As always there seems to be some catch 🙂 I’m running a german localized version of Visual Studio 2005, so my item-templates should reside in a folder below my language-code (1033 instead of 1031). Unfortunatly the installer does not recognize my locale, so the item-templates are placed in the wrong directory. Just move the Nhibernate.zip from C:\Programme\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\CSharp\1031 to C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\[USERNAME]\Eigene Dateien\Visual Studio 2005\Templates\ItemTemplates\Visual C#\1033 and the item-template will show up 🙂
