Intellisense for NHibernate 2.0 in Visual Studio 2008

There have been several posts on this that have been quite helpful, but I think they were only looking at 1.2. I originally saw this post on Benjamin Day's blog. I tried it and it didn't work for me...then I realized the file names have changed. The steps are basically the same:
  • Copy the *.xsd files from src\NHibernate (there are three - nhibernate-configuration.xsd, nhibernate-generic.xsd, and nhibernate-mapping.xsd)
  • Copy them to \program files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Xml\Schemas
  • Rename them to include the -2.2 suffix (nhibernate-configuration-2.2.xsd, nhibernate-generic-2.2.xsd, and nhibernate-mapping-2.2.xsd)

Additional methods can be found on Aaron Stebner's blog.

Pretty simple, eh?

Happy coding!

did you get it from here?

Looks like nhibernate-generic.xsd was dropped from my zip file...

very helpfull I try mad with it.

Looks like the XSD files are no longer a part of the release bins or source. Very annoying. At least Spring.Net still has them.


I just grabbed the latest source for 2.1.2 GA and the xsd files are there.
