Publisher Comments:

The ADO.NET Entity Framework is radically different from earlier versions of ADO.NET: even experienced ADO.NET programmers will have to master completely new skillsets to make the most of it. When you do, however, you will be rewarded with remarkable power and flexibility in how you use data in your applications. In just 24 step-by-step lessons of one hour or less, Sams Teach Yourself the ADO.NET Entity Framework will help you start using the ADO.NET Entity Framework to solve real-world business problems. This friendly, accessible book covers the entire framework, without ever becoming overwhelming or intimidating. You will learn how to build and query entity data models; perform advanced querying with Entity SQL and LINQ to Entities; create relationships, stored procedures, and transactions; integrate with WinForms, ASP.NET, and WCF Services; and even use native views, multiple entity sets, and IPOCO. Step-by-step instructions walk you through your most common questions, issues, and tasks... Q and As, Quizzes, and Exercises help you test your knowledge... "Did You Know?" tips offer insider advice and shortcuts... and "Watch Out!" alerts help you avoid problems.
