MSDN Webcast: geekSpeak: Persistence Ignorance and Entity Framework 4 With Dane Morgridge (Level 200)

Date Added: Feb 2010
Format: Webcast

Persistence ignorance is one of the biggest features missing in Entity Framework 1 and one of the most exciting features coming with Entity Framework 4. The presenter of this webcast explains how to use Plain old CLR Object (POCO) classes to build applications that take advantage of the Entity Framework but carry no dependency on it, letting the attendee build services more easily, which makes unit testing simpler and allows for greater separation of concerns without writing one's own classes. Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 contains T4 templates to generate the POCO classes so that one can use all the same tools when working with the Entity Framework.
