Default "Strongly typed"

Hi Imar,

I'm sorry for asking such an elementary question, but could you please explain what is meant by "strongly typed"? For example, on page 428 you say that "if you drop the Review table on the diagram, you end up with a strongly typed Review class."

Thank you for your trouble.

Roman

Strongly typed refers to the fact that at design time an object is fully known. That is, the compiler (and thus IntelliSense) knows that a Review class has an Id property. This ensures type safety (you can't pass a Review to a method that expects an Album for example) and generally helps you write better and faster code with fewer bugs.

This is just the 10,000 feet overview. For more background:

Cheers,

Imar
