Updating entity framework conceptual model
When the Transform Related Text Templates On Save property is set to True, all text templates that are related to the file are processed when the file is saved.
When the property is set to False, none of the related text templates are processed.
One would expect developers to be able to write something like the piece of code below: This is the class of expressiveness and abstraction level that ADO.
NET, and in particular LINQ and the Entity Framework working together, brings to application development.
For more information, see How to: Generate a Database from a Conceptual Model (Entity Data Model Tools) and How to: Customize Database Generation (Generate Database Wizard).
An file also contains information that is used by the ADO.
The rest of this paper describes in detail the various elements that work together in order to make the sample above work.
Every business application has, explicitly or implicitly, a conceptual data model that describes the various elements of the problem domain, as well as each element's structure, the relationships between each element, their constraints, and so on.
When this property is set to Entity Deploy (the default value), three files are created from the file when a build is executed: the conceptual model file (.csdl), the storage model file (.ssdl), and the mapping file (.msl).
These files are either embedded as resources or copied to the output directory, depending on the value of the Metadata Artifact Processing property of the model.
