My second session of Tech Ed is on the advances coming down the pipe for ADO.NET. There’s some neat stuff coming!
Key themes — Data modeling at a conceptual level, better integration with .NET, better integratino with programming languages.
Entity Data Model (EDM): Entity-relationship model, Explicit concdept of entity and relationships, they are “executable” (not jsut like an E-R diagram that you hang on the wall)
Entity SQL: Use in MapCommand objects. Data store independent. Very similar to T-SQL.
ADO.NET object layer
LINQ: Each data source will be LINQ-enabled (objects, datasets, SQLJ, entitys, XML). LINQ capabilities in Datasets may prove to be particularly useful.
