Learning Curve…

Archive for the ‘Entity Framework’ Category

With the ADO.NET Entity Framework (EF), you take a bunch of database objects like tables and turn them into .NET objects that you can access in your code. You can then use these objects in queries or use them directly in data-binding scenarios. EF also enables you to do the reverse: design an object model first and then let EF create the necessary database structure for you.
Working with EF is pretty easy and quite flexible. Using a diagram designer, you drag and drop objects like tables from your database into your Entity model. The objects you drop on the diagram become available as objects. For example, if you drop the TableXYZ table on the diagram, you end up with a strongly typed TableXYZ class. You can create instances of this class using LINQ queries and
other means.

When you drop more than one related database table on your diagram, the designer detects the relationships between the tables and then replicates these relationships in your object model.
