- POCO Support Comes to Entity Framework 4
Magazine/Issue: CoDe Magazine, 2010 Nov/Dec
Release Date: Friday, October 22, 2010
Quick ID: 1011121
When Microsoft first released the Entity Framework, agile developers roundly criticized it. These developers hold the tenets of domain-driven development and testability very high. The classes generated from the Entity Data Model (EDM) are very tightly bound to the Entity Framework APIs by either inheriting from the EntityObject or implement interfaces that allow the classes to participate in change tracking and relationship management.

If you have been working with the ADO.NET Entity Framework, you have probably been extremely eager to get your hands on the next version that is now part of Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0.

As a developer, it is no surprise to encounter unexpected behavior when working with a new technology.Microsoft added the Entity Framework (EF) to ADO.NET with the .NET 3.5 Service Pack 1 released in 2008 enabling developers to incorporate a data model directly in their application and interact with their data through the model rather than working directly against the database. For background on EF, see my previous article, “Introducing ADO.NET Entity Framework” in the Nov/Dec 2007 issue of CODE Magazine.
- Relational Database Persistence with NHibernate, Part 1
Magazine/Issue: CoDe Magazine, 2009 May/Jun
Release Date: Monday, April 27, 2009
Quick ID: 0906081
Take advantage of the best relational databases and object-oriented design have to offer without compromising either.Using an object/relational mapping framework like NHibernate, you can significantly reduce the amount of code you write (and therefore potential bugs) for performing standard operations against your database and save the heavy ADO.NET coding for the complicated scenarios.
