The ADO.NET Entity Framework is a new way to build the data access layer of your Windows or web applications. It's an Object Relational Mapping (ORM) technology that makes it easy to tie together the data in your database with the objects in your applications, by abstracting the object model of an application from its relational or logical model.
This chapter from Entity Framework Tutorial discusses how to get started with Entity Framework. You'll learn how to create the Payroll Entity Data Model, map the model to the database, and write a program to query data.
