Model-First Development with Entity Framework 4.0 (?)
May 21, 2009Posted by on
How did they go from version 1.0 of Entity Framework directly to 4.0?
Anyway, here is a nice overview of the new model first story that Microsoft has baked into the new EF in Visual Studio 2010.
After having watched this I have upgraded my impression of EF from “Complete Garbage” to “Not Entirely Horrifying”.
The RAD editor gives me pause as that is a sure sign of generating garbage behind the scenes. Is it human readable/modifiable?
The original EDMX format was incredibly brittle and very anti-source control system friendly. Have they made improvements to that?
I’ll have to play with it this weekend and see what it is like to actually build a simple app with it.
It is nice to see that MS is listening and at least attempting to play catch up with nHibernate. Would be interesting to do a feature by feature comparison between the two.
