Entity Framework - DB tables problem

Posted By:      Posted Date: November 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
 

I have a problem with the Entity Framework. Everything seems to work (created edmx file, associated with a DB, generated edmx.sql) except that tables in the DB are not created.

As the result during updating the entity container (SaveChanges method) an exception is thrown telling "{"Invalid object name 'dbo.Entity1Set'."}".

Correct me if I am wrong but the editor's operation "Generate Database from Model" should create the edmx.sql file (the file is created) and tables in the DB?

What am I doing wrong? I am using the VS2010 and tried different projects: console app, ASP MVC2; every time the result is the same: tables in the DB are not created.

Entity Framework - how to join tables without LINQ and with only string?

  

Hi all,

I have a question about Entity Framework. Please answer if you know answer on this. I have such query :

    String queryRaw =
        "SELECT " +
        "p.ProductName AS ProductName " +
        "FROM ProductEntities.Products AS p " +
        "INNER JOIN CategoryEntities.Categories AS c " +
        "ON p.CategoryID = c.CategoryID ";
   
    ObjectQuery<DbDataRecord> query = new ObjectQuery<DbDataRecord>(queryRaw, entityContext);
   
    GridView1.DataSource = query;
    GridView1.DataBind();



Particularly I want to join few tables in one query, but I can NOT use LINQ and can NOT use ObjectQuery with objects mapped to DB fields inside my query. Because each entity creates dynamically. So this is what i can NOT use :

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb425822.aspx#linqtosql_topic12

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb896339%28v=VS.90%29.aspx

The question is can I use something like this instead of using objects?

query.Join ("INNER JOIN CategoryEntities.Category ON p.CategoryID = c.CategoryID ");

Sybase Entity Framework Problem

  

Having trouble finding a solution to this so I'm going to throw it out to the forums.

I've got a web application that is connecting to a Sybase SQL Anywhere 11 database using a system DSN.  I've created a EDMX file so I can use the Entity Framework and LINQ to do my data operations.

My problem is that everything works correctly on my local development machine when I run the web application via Cassini; however when I publish the application to the IIS server the thing blows up on me.

The error I get is 

Server Error in '/' Application.

Unable to find the requested .Net Framework Data Provider.  It may not be installed.

Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.ArgumentException: Unable to find the requested .Net Framework Data Provider.  It may not be installed.

Dynamic data and Entity framework problem when using a function in RegisterContext

  

I am trying to use asp.net dynamic data using entity framewrok. my entity framework (edmx file) is in another dll and I dont want to put connection string in config files.
I use this code to register my objectContext in global.asax:

model.RegisterContext(() => new MyObjectContext("EntityConnectionString"), new ContextConfiguration() { ScaffoldAllTables = true });

the first page (the list of tables) is ok, but when i click any table, i get this error:

The specified named connection is either not found in the configuration, not intended to be used with the EntityClient provider, or not valid.

 it seems that for the second request, it checks the web.config to look for entity connection string.

Multiple database support with Entity Framework

  
One of the features introduced in Entity Framework is being database independent. Which mean each database provider can support Entity Framework by implementing its provider.

This feature allows you build applications independent from the underplaying database provider. In this post I'm going to show how to build an application that support multiple databases using same conceptual model made by Entity Framework.

Creating a Generic Entity Framework 4.0 Repository

  
With .NET 4.0 right around the corner, I thought it would be cool to download Visual Studio 2010 beta 2 and start playing around with the next release of Entity Framework.

The initial release of Entity Framework came with a great deal of criticism. To make matters worse, there was a large uproar when it was rumored that Microsoft would be abandoning LINQ to SQL, in favor of Entity Framework. This was because, at the time, many developers felt Entity Framework was an inferior technology to LINQ to SQL. To set things right, Microsoft proactively moved forward with improving Entity Framework, in time for the 4.0 release of the .NET Framework. This is good news because my initial impressions, so far, have been nothing but positive.

ASP.NET 4.0 Dynamic Data and Many to Many Entity Framework Entities

  
I did not play much with Dynamic Data controls in VS2008 and just made a cool discovery in VS2010 Beta 2. This may not even be new, but as I'm sitting 30,000+ feet over the Atlantic ocean, I don't have access to VS2008 at the moment to check.

Data accessors or Entity framework

  

The entlib 5 sugest me to use with data accessors for mapping data from database to my data objects (ORM).

But in .NET 3.5 and especially in .NET 4, I can use in entity framework as ORM methodology for data objects.

What data accessors uses advantages over the entity framework?

What differences that should be affect on my using decisions?
