Entity Framework Code First

The “EF Code-First” functionality provides a pretty nice code-centric way to work with data.

Advantage

  • ·         Develop without ever having to open a designer or define an XML mapping file, and start from a class
  • ·         Define your model objects by simply writing “plain old classes” with no base classes required
  • ·         Use a “convention over configuration” approach that enables database persistence without explicitly configuring anything
  • ·         Optionally override the convention-based persistence and use a fluent code API to fully customize the persistence mapping. columbus oh website design

Disadvantage

  • Mapping entities to the database is quite complex
  • There is no Model diagram
