Putting Entity framework 4 to use in a business architecture

Updates have been made since version 1 of this article!

“>Read more about it here.

Finally I’m finished. I have been struggling with an intended sum-up of my latest post using Entity framework 4. It ended up with an document of about 40 pages. There is a lot of code in there so the number of pages could be a bit missleading (which of course depends on what you are seeking).

The complete code example can be found here.

As always….. Have fun with it!

      I have tried it and it works for me… I have uploaded the file again and changed the name. Hopefully it will work….

  3. First thanks for a very well written and informative article. I think that the MSDN magazine will be very interested in publishing the article.

    This is what I have learned
    – Lots of tricks with an Ioc container
    – Repository or not? Orin, the NHibernate guy has also talked about not using a repository
    – Nice intro to mapping and as a bonus auto discovery of mapping files. Who is the first to create Fluent NHibernate for the Entity Framework?
    – VERY nice wrapper for ObjectContext
    This is what I am missing
    – Dirty tracking on the client e.g. Silverlight
    – IsValid and IsSavable for binding to buttons enable property
    – Working with real world object graphs and keeping track of changes.
    – Client side queries? For sort, paging or you end up with a service with A LOT of methods.

    That was my wish list for Christmas. Hope that you have the energy to follow up on our excellent article.

    Merry Christmas and a happy new year

    • Hi!

      Thanks for the cred. I haven’t really planned so much for the future of this sample app and blog series, but there will be more.
