Your Hands-on Guide to Entity Framework 4
Get a thorough introduction to Microsoft's core framework for modeling and interacting with data in .NET applications. The second edition of this acclaimed guide provides a hands-on tour of the latest ADO.NET Entity Framework (EF) version in Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4. You'll learn how to use EF4 in a variety of applications, and gain a deep understanding of its architecture and APIs.

* Create persistent ignorant entities, repositories, and write unit tests
* Delve into model customization, relationship management, change tracking, data concurrency, and more
