I think you should include and Auto Map button in ServiceContractTranslator to automatically Map Properties with the same Name-Type.

We added this to our Custom Factory in 1 day and I think it can save a lot of time during services implementation.

I think that's a reasonable suggestion. Actually, this is how the very first (pre-release) version of the translator worked before we allowed the more explicit translation UI.

I can't promise anything at this point, but you're certainly free to add it as a feature request in the Issue Tracker and see how many people weigh in on it. Thanks,

Interms of translators!! I thought that the Factories way of doing it was a bit verbose, and so i creaded a translator that maps attribuets to Properties, i've got one for the Datareader field names to Business entity, and another from Business entity to DataType.
