.NET 4 comes with a version of Entity Framework that is fit for purpose. Entity Framework is Microsoft’s ORM, their version of NHibernate. Entity Framework version 1 forced developers to be tightly coupled to Entity Framework, this goes against traditional ORM technology and creates problems for unit testing. Entity Framework 4 fixes this problem via POCO support. However it is still up to developers to work out how to utilise the technology to truly loosely couple application logic from business logic. This talk will take you through these new features and show how the repository pattern can be deployed with Entity Framework to provide a testable and loosely coupled solution.
.NET 4.0 introduced a number of technologies into the .NET world. This workshop looks not only at these technologies but, more importantly, how they can be combined into compelling applications.
We will cover ASP.NET MVC3, WCF 4.0, Workflow 4.0 and Entity Framework 4.0 along the way, and show you not only the benefits of these technologies but also where they can cause problems.
During the workshop we will build a functional n-tier application that demonstrates the technologies “in-situ” and shows patterns that you can use to keep your architecture clean.
