Entity Framework Code First End to End

Sergey Barskiy

Architect, Tyler Technologies

Level: Introductory to Intermediate


Introduction to EF

  • Entity Framework in Microsoft’s ORM Tool

    • Has been out since 2008

    • Code First has been out since 2011


Why Entity Framework Code First

  • ORM

  • Code / type safety

  • Rapid application development and prototyping

  • Supported and developed by Microsoft

  • Continuous commitment from Microsoft

  • Open sourced

  • Testable

  • Flexible / Conventions and configurations


Approaches

  • DAL?

  • Business Layer?

  • UI?


Separation of Concerns

  • EF is DAL technology

  • Isolation from other layers

  • Patterns

    • Repository

    • Data Mapper

    • Table Data Gateway

    • Row Data Gateway

    • Data Mapper


DAL Strategy

  • Keep Data (Table) Objects clean

  • Separate data access from DTOs

  • Create Access Interface

  • Expose Data Access in a service layer with business objects

  • Using Mappers to cut down on code


Developing Model

  • Configuration Options

    • Configuration classes

    • Attributes?

  • Handling Relationships

    • Relationship Types

    • Using foreign key columns

  • Using Complex types

  • Legacy databases / explicit mappings


Creating Data Access Layer

  • Repository Pattern

    • Mediates between the domain and data mapping layers using a collection-like interface for accessing domain objects.

    • Interface based repository

    • CQRS

    • Write vs. Read Repository

    • Taking dependency on IQueryable?


Working with Views and Stored Procedures

  • EF is not all-or-nothing answers

  • Writing classes for materialization

  • Avoiding SQL injection


Handling Schema Changes

  • Code First Migrations

    • Create database

    • Maintain schema

    • Command line migrations

  • Explicit vs. Implicit Migrations

  • Initializers (for rapid prototyping)

  • Migrating initializer


Performance

  • Caching Context

    • Web environments

  • CRUD Efficiencies

    • Update

    • Delete

    • Select

  • Lazy Loading

    • Beware of multiple queries


Demo Solution

  • ASP.NET MVC

  • Layer Separation via Projects
