I am new to ASP.NET MVC but have gone through several tutorials already including those one asp.net/mvc and an 8 hour course on Intro to asp.net on MVA. I am working on a project and would like to use MysqL as the datasource. I have several questions in
this regard though.

In my opinion, the entity framework supported MySql, so I think scaffolding can supported MySql too. The MySql database is the third-party software, you’d better to do test by yourself.
