Now that Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4.0 have been released, users of Entity Framework can use POCO objects with Entity Framework without the need for wrapper layers such as EFPocoAdapter. Since I know a number of people are using EFPocoAdapter in their production applications and it is not supported, I recommend they migrate to using native POCO support in EF v4.0 which is the supported way of using POCOs from now on.
This post will highlight the differences between EF and EFPOCOAdapter, which you must keep in mind when migrating your code base.
We have recently published Visual Basic versions of our MSDN Code Gallery samples for Entity Framework v3.5SP1.
The following translated samples are currently available in two languages (C# and VB) [...]
I’ve just posted another round of updates to EF POCO Adapter based on feedback from users. This set of changes is focused on N-tier scenarios and detached entities (it adds missing wrappers for EF APIs and fixes behavior of existing ones). [...]
I’ve just posted updates to EF POCO Adapter (v1.02) which resolves a couple of issues spotted by users: Detached proxies (created by EFPocoContxt.CreateObject<T>) as well as proxies in the Added state were failing on property navigation. [...]
One of the limitations of Entity Framework V1 released as part of .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and Visual Studio 2008 SP1 is lack of support for POCO entity objects. POCO stands for Plain Old CLR Object and refers to an object that does not have any persistence concerns and is not aware of persistence framework. Modern development approaches such as DDD (Domain-Driven Design) and TDD (Test-Driven Development) prefer clear separation of concerns which implies persistence ignorance. [...]
We have recently published a sample called EFPocoAdapter that includes code generator and a supporting library that implements POCO object tracking on top of Entity Framework V1. [...]
