Entities Framework 4 Questions

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

1. Do you have to setup cascading on the SQL server also, or if you setup Cascading in EF 4 that will do it for you, and you can keep Cascading in SQL not setup?

2. Is there any problems I should be aware of like the problems(yet manual fixble) with  using Cascading in EF 4 , MVC 2, SQL 2005.


Thanks :)

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.

Entity Framework POCO and WCF Data Service - Lazy-loading (expand?) related entities?

I've followed ScottGu article on creating an Entity Framework POCO classes for NerdDinners (right now there are only 2 classes, Dinner and RSVP. I then created a WCF Data Service class, which points to my EF class (NerdDinner), everything is working fine, except I can't lazy-load or expand related entities. For example, I want to get all load all the Dinners and their related RSVPs, something like this throw an error:var result = (from d in db.Dinners.Expand("RSVPs")                      select d);The error is a null reference error:at System.Data.Services.Serializers.SyndicationSerializer.WriteObjectProperties(IExpandedResult expanded, Object customObject, ResourceType resourceType, Uri absoluteUri, String relativeUri, SyndicationItem item, DictionaryContent content, EpmSourcePathSegment currentSourceRoot) at System.Data.Services.Serializers.SyndicationSerializer.WriteEntryElement(IExpandedResult expanded, Object element, ResourceType expectedType, Uri absoluteUri, String relativeUri, SyndicationItem target) ... ... ...Any idea why or what I need to do to load related contents?Thank you very much.

Using Multiple Entity Framework Entities in MVC2


I need help getting data from multiple Entities models into an MVC controller.  Most of the examples I have seen for using EF in an MVC2 app only use a single entitiy.

I have just started using MVC2 in C# using the Entity Framework models (CIOps.model) created from an SQL database.   I can create the controller and views using single tables of the model in MVC2, but I just cannot get my head around how to get data from multiple entity tables into the controller (similar to joins in T-SQL).  I have included an example below of the controller code that works with a single entity table, tbl_tours (tbl_tour in DB).

Could someone please illustrate how this code would be changed to include additional columns from FK tables in addition to tbl_tours columns.  E.g. the clients name from the tbl_clients, the coordinators name from the tbl_employees, and costs from tbl_costs entities?  Is it possible to do this directly using the EF model entities/classes that are already created and not use LINQ, POCO, Repositories, etc.? The FK relationships are already in the EF models. 

I have included the whole controller code, but I just need a few examples of how to join the multiple entities, not rewrite every CRUD function function in the controller.  I think this will get me over the hump in using EF in an MVC2 App.  Also i

how can I get the same nerddinner.Entities as mvc sample nerddinner using ADO.NET Entity Framework


DbClick the code behind file of NerdDiner.edmx,It reads "This code was generated from a template." on the top comment lines.

I generate my own .edmx  file automatically with VS2010, just found that the .designer.cs file didnt contains Objectset,Methods as nerddinner does

IDK which template hanselman used to generate this .edmx files,dont tell me he wrote it all by himself!

Shoud .edmx and its code behind file be generated automaticlly without hard-coding?

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.

Bar Code Scanners with the .NET Compact Framework

Summary: Learn how to make your applications use bar code scanners in a generic way-ndependent of the specific bar code scanners that are used on different devices. Using the design patterns Façade and Factory, the implementation not only supports multiple bar code scanners, but it also makes it easy to add support for other bar code scanners. After a brief discussion about bar code scanners and the bar code scanner pattern, a download code sample, written in C#, demonstrates the use of the pattern and technologies.

Any framework for creating a job scheduler service?


Just curious to know if there was any official Microsoft code blocks, classes, or such for writing a service that runs other assemblies or WCF services?  That can be configured easily from a web page, pre-coded, for running tasks at certain times on certain recurring intervals?  I've already built one but am open to anything done better- which I'm sure there is.  Thanks!!!

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?
