Publisher Comments:

If you use Entity Framework in Visual Studio 2008 and .NET 3.5, this is the book you want. Programming Entity Framework, 1st Edition offers experienced developers a thorough introduction to Microsoft's core framework for modeling and interacting with data in .NET applications. This hands-on tour provides a deep understanding of Entity Framework's architecture and APIs, and explains how to use the framework in a variety of applications built with Visual Studio 2008 and .NET 3.5.

From the Entity Data Model (EDM) and Object Services to EntityClient and the Metadata Workspace, this highly acclaimed first edition covers it all.

  • Understand the core concepts you need to make the best use of the Entity Framework (EF) in your applications
  • Learn to query your data, using either LINQ to Entities or Entity SQL
  • Create Windows Forms, WPF, and ASP.NET applications
  • Build ASMX web services and WCF services
  • Use Object Services to work directly with your entity objects
  • Delve into model customization, relationship management, change tracking, data concurrency, and more

One important note: while many of the lessons from this book will continue to be valuable as you move to .NET 4, the thoroughly revised second edition of Programming Entity Framework (August 2010) specifically targets Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4 — where there have been many advancements and additions to the framework.

Synopsis:

Programming Data Access with the ADO.NET Entity Framework is a thorough introduction to Microsoft's new framework for building the data access layer of Windows and web applications. Written by Julia Lerman, the most recognized independent expert on the subject, the book covers not only such core framework components as the Entity Data Model (EDM) and the LINQ to Entities and Entity SQL query languages, but also shows how to put them to use in a variety of applications. Complete with scores of reusable examples, this practical guide is the book that developers need to master the next generation data access technology from Microsoft and put it to work.

Synopsis:

Entity Framework 4 in Action is an introduction to the Entity Framework for developers working in .NET who possess a working knowledge of ADO.NET. Beginning with a review of the core ideas behind the objectrelational management (ORM) model, it outlines how Entity Framework offers a smooth transition from a traditional ADO.NET approach. Featuring numerous examples and in-depth case studies, the book explores the Entity Framework story in clear, easy-to-follow detail. The infrastructure and inner workings are highlighted as needed and where they relate to particular features.

This book clearly explains what Entity Framework can do for the reader, without getting sidetracked in the theoretical details of implementation. It is an ideal resource for the developer who needs to implement a solution using Microsoft technologies and has made the decision to use the Entity Framework.
