This post covers a new Entity Framework extension called POCO Templates. POCO Templates is a T4 template and associated include files, that allow you to generate POCO classes or Plain Old CLR Objects for use with the Entity Framework. T4 templates are used because T4 makes it easy to customize your Entities.
POCO Templates ship as part of the Microsoft Entity Framework Feature CTP 1. The CTP works on top of the latest version of the Entity Framework released as part of .NET 4.0 Beta1, and you can download it here.
