  • Entity Framework and the repository pattern

    by Andrew Clymer

    .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.
