Data Points: Demystifying Entity Framework Strategies: Model Creation Workflow

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Dynamic Data using Code First Entity Framework Model


I have used Dynamic Data before using LinqToEntity where my Entity model used the Data First model and the GUI.  Now I am trying to use the Code First model witht he Entity CTP 4.  I have my model created and created a new Dynamic Data site.  I read that I need to replace the default RegisterContext call:

DefaultModel.RegisterContext(typeof(PriceLoaderContext), new ContextConfiguration() { ScaffoldAllTables = true });


DefaultModel.RegisterContext(new DomainModelProvider(typeof(PriceLoaderContext)), new ContextConfiguration() { ScaffoldAllTables = true }); 

When I search further on DomainModelProvider, I find that it is part of the WCF RIA. Is this correct? Is this what I need for this to work? Has anyone else done this and got it to work?

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).
