Entity Framework Q&A – John Papa’s Article


In the new MSDN magazine there is an article in the data points section by
John Papa which answers few of the common questions raised when
developing with the entity framework.
John Papa answers questions like:



  • Why use Entity SQL when I can use LINQ to get to entities?

  • What is the role of ObjectContext?

  • How do explicit and eager loading work in the Entity Framework?

  • How do I see the SQL that will execute?

  • What can I do with complex types?

  • How do I create a complex type?

I found the article very helpful and I recommend it to everyone who wants to
start developing with the entity framework.
