Must have tools for BCS development

Creating a BCS model and external list with SharePoint Designer 2010 makes things a breeze: just few clicks and we are done, but this typically does not work in development environment. Why?

Well, lucky that there are tools for that, check out this blog post by Russell Palmer. These tools are:

  1. BCS Artifact generator
  2. BCS Solution Packaging tool
