  • Daniel,

    Have been toying with the EF for a while now and this is the most succint and useful article I have seen on some of the more contentious and advanced scenarios - thx.

    Am a big fan of nhibernate (and the POCO approach), can you recommned any good guidance/examples on implementing a codegen free approach you alude to in section 2.

  • Mark,

    I’m glad you found it helpful.  For more information about building classes from scratch, I recommend looking at the following link to part of the MSDN docs:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb738559.aspx

    There’s some pretty good explanation there as well as a fair amount of sample code.  If you have additional questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

  • Daniel,

    Have been exploring the EF and a friend at Microsoft Brasil pointed me this blog. Nice work! It's a pretty good FAQ.

    I still got one question: the lastest EF version shipped with de VS 2008 SP1 Beta still doesn't support entity inheritance? (such as Contact <- Person <- Customer for example) as posted in this FAQ at Question 7.2?

    Thanks!

    Rodrigo

  • Entity inheritance is supported and has been from the first CTP of the EF.  What question 7.2 is talking about is the idea of a property of an entity which is not itself an entity (it doesn't have identity, it can't participate in a relationship, etc.) but which does have some structure.  We call those complex types.  Complex types do not support inheritance and won't for v1, but entities do support it.
