Default Linq to SQL and the Entity Framework

Why you decide to use LINQ to SQL instead Entity Framework?

btw, this is an excellent book 10/10

I actually started writing this book last March and I was done before the final release of the Entity Framework was released. I'm working on a version that will work with the Entity Framework and hope to post it soon.

The nice part about the pattern defined in this book is that the LINQ to SQL classes can be swapped with Entity Framework classes with minimal work in the BLL and nothing in the UI.

Hope this helps,
Vince

And maybe you want to switch all Stored Procedures to Entity Framework code too?
It's just a thought, as imho Stored Procedures are such a pain in the ... to maintain.

Its a great design that made my life simple. I am eager to see 2nd Edition of this book. Can you give any rough idea about its release date?

I've started a series of articles on www.aspalliance.com regarding the Entity Framework 4 and VS 2010. I'll be posting more each month and I'll be following the same pattern as the book except it will be using the entity framework rather than LINQ to SQL.
