The Entity Framework Conceptual Model
In software development (stages of app development), engineers tend to work with databases. Here’s when the Entity framework becomes useful. It allows focusing on the business domain of the project more.
- The conceptual model is like a focal point – a model of the objects in an application
- focus on database schema
- Visual Designer defines the conceptual model, which creates classes used further in the application
- define classes and use Code First feature. And then Entity Framework will comprehend the conceptual model
Either way, Entity Framework works out how to move from your conceptual model to your database. So, you can query against your conceptual model objects and work directly with them.
