About The BookPractical reference for building professional-level skills with the ADO.NET Entity Framework

Get the essential guide to the ADO.NET Entity Framework—with expert insights direct from the Microsoft Entity Framework team. This practical reference covers the Entity Framework features with a focus on real-world scenarios and examples rather than exhaustive property-by-property coverage of the API. The Entity Framework allows developers to construct their application model and then map the application model to their database schema. Developers write queries using either Language Integrated Query (LINQ) or Entity SQL. The Entity Framework converts the LINQ expressions or Entity SQL queries into database queries based on the mapping information supplied. This book provides pragmatic insights into object-relationship management (ORM) with the ADO.NET Entity Framework, and explores how developers can simplify connections between data and applications. In addition, it features preview coverage of exciting forthcoming technologies from Microsoft, including code-named “Astoria” and “Jasper"—extensions to the Entity Framework. Includes a companion Web site with code samples.
