Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Get a thorough introduction to ADO.NET Entity Framework 4 — Microsoft's core framework for modeling and interacting with data in .NET applications. The second edition of this acclaimed guide provides a hands-on tour of the framework latest version in Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4. Not only will you learn how to use EF4 in a variety of applications, you'll also gain a deep understanding of its architecture and APIs.

Written by Julia Lerman, the leading independent authority on the framework, Programming Entity Framework covers it all — from the Entity Data Model and Object Services to WCF Services, MVC Apps, and unit testing. This book highlights important changes for experienced developers familiar with the earlier version.

  • Understand the core concepts you need to make the best use of the EF4 in your applications
  • Learn to query your data, using either LINQ to Entities or Entity SQL
  • Create Windows Forms, WPF, ASP.NET Web Forms, and ASP.NET MVC applications
  • Build and consume WCF Services, WCF Data Services, and WCF RIA Services
  • Use Object Services to work directly with your entity objects
  • Create persistent ignorant entities, repositories, and write unit tests
  • Delve into model customization, relationship management, change tracking, data concurrency, and more
  • Get scores of reusable examples — written in C# (with notes on Visual Basic syntax) — that you can implement right away

Book News Annotation:

Lerman, a well-known authority on Microsoft's Entity Framework, author, and speaker, provides a hands-on journey through the most current ADO.NET Entity Framework (EF4) version in Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4. This thoroughly revised second edition explains changes for developers who are familiar with the earlier version. Topics include the Entity Data Model, exploring LINQ to Entities in more depth, modifying entities and saving changes, implementing a more real-world model, data binding with Windows forms and WPF applications, customizing Entities, and building layered Web applications.

Synopsis:

Entity Framework is now the focus of Microsoft's data access strategy. This work targets corporate developers who are using Visual Studio and Entity Framework to develop their own applications.

Synopsis:

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 Microsofts core framework for modeling and interacting with data in .NET applications. This hands-on tour provides a deep understanding of Entity Frameworks 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.

One important note: while many of the lessons from this book will continue to be valuable as you move to .NET 4.0, the thoroughly revised second edition of Programming Entity Framework (August 2010) specifically targets Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0where there have been many advancements and additions to the framework.

Synopsis:

Programming Entity Framework, 2e walks the reader through their first introduction to Entity Framework and the Entity Data Model, then builds on this knowledge bit by bit throughout the book as the gains a deep understanding of the technology while learning various application patterns for leveraging this framework.

Entity Framework is now the focus of Microsoft's data access strategy. This goes far beyond .NET developers and is being embedded into many of their new technologies e.g., SQL Server 2010, BizTalk, Oslo, Azure, Astoria etc. This book will not cover all of those technologies, but will target the corporate developer who is using Visual Studio and Entity Framework to develop their own applications.

The book is designed to give readers a thorough understanding of Entity Framework, from detailed foundations to various application patterns. It will cover: 1. Entity Data Model 2. Entity Framework APIs 3. Building Apps with Entity Framework 4. Using the new features in EF4 5. Using the new features in the Feature Pack
