Unable to access Entity in controller

 Problem is that when i do like :- Right-click the Models directory and select Add?New Item?Data?ADO.NET Entity Data Model. then generatemodel from a database, it creates OopsData.edmx. and creates entity named OopsEntity. When i try to access this entity in Homecontroller it gives me error like broken reference something. But if i do same thing by right -clicking the project (solution explorer) then i am able to access OopsEntity in HomeController. Reason for asking that is coz i was following the MVC Music Store tut and in it, its done by creating OopsData.edmx in model folder but in my case its not working. Other question is that what is that difference between creating same thing by right clicking on (using) model or solution explorer (project). 

Custom Entity Framework template and access to the database type

First and foremost ... I already made a few changes in the template, the most important one changing the methods generated for stored procedures with OUTPUT parameters and no resultset so that instead of instantiating a few OutputParameter objects, passing them to the method and extracting the values (all without any type checking) you just call the method with a few "out someType?" parameters so I do not need the very basics. I am totally confused by all those GlobalItem, EdmProperty, BuiltInTypeKind, TypeUsage and all this made of objects, all alike and all different though so as soon as I need more data than what's already used by the template I run into problems :-(What I would like is to change the WritePrimitiveTypeProperty() so that it outputs [StringLength(xxx)]  for all char, varchar, nchar and nvarchar properties. But I can't find a way to get from an EdmProperty in the model to the database type in the store.Can anyone help me?In case anyone is interested here's the modified stored procedure mapping code for the template. The first code replaces the original in the .tt: //////// //////// Write EntityContainer and ObjectContext Function Import methods. //////// region.Begin(GetResourceString("Template_RegionFunctionImports")); foreach (EdmFunction edmFunction in container.FunctionIm

Access database with help of entity


Hello Everyone,

     I am slightly new to this part of .Net and I will need your help.

 There is a framework in Java known as JPA/Hibernate which uses classes to map tables of databases. I want to know can we achieve the same result in .Net. I think that is possible through ORM but I am not very much sure how to use it.

Can anyone please explain me with an example.

Thanks in advance

An Entity Relationship Diagram Example

An Entity Relationship Diagram conveys a lot of information with a very concise notation. The important part to keep in mind is to limit what you're reading using the following technique:

Choose two entities (e.g. Company and Employee)
Pick one that you're interested in (e.g. how a single Company relates to employees)
Read the notation on the second entity (e.g. the crow's feet with the O above it next to the Employee entity).

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.

MVC architecture in ASP.Net using C# and Microsoft Data Access Application block

The Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern separates the modeling of the domain, the presentation, and the actions based on user input into three separate classes [Burbeck92]:

Model. The model manages the behavior and data of the application domain, responds to requests for information about its state (usually from the view), and responds to instructions to change state (usually from the controller).

View. The view manages the display of information.

Controller. The controller interprets the mouse and keyboard inputs from the user, informing the model and/or the view to change as appropriate.

Wrong Account being used to access files - Help - No Impersonation


I run a simple .aspx website on a Windows Server 2008 machine.

There is NO impersonation, and System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent().Name returns NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE, which it the account which the application pool runs. In my web.config, I have <authentication mode="Forms">.


I tried to test the security of the application and server by removing file permissions to the .aspx files. I was greatly worried when the website continued to run without problem (it should not have been able to read the .aspx files).

By turning on file level auditing, I discovered that the .aspx files were being read by the machine$ account (if the machine is called Serv1, then the files would be read by the Serv1$ account, which seems to have access to all files on the local machine).


Is this a security breach or is this behaviour by design ?

Please can somebody assist, as I am worried.
