we're using entity framework, but producing the database in the edmx file not producing the edmx file in the database. I have used sights using the framework, only when producing the edmx file in the database. There does not appear to become a way to produce a view within the model after which push it towards the database. Maybe I am missing something. Sights are extremely helpful which i can't imagine there is not a way to produce them within the model then perform a "Generate database from model..."
