Entity Framework Architecture


I am trying to explain Entity Framework Architecture by bellow given figure.
LINQ to Entities: LINQ to Entities is a query language used to write queries against the object model. It returns entities, which are defined in the conceptual model. You can use your LINQ skills here.
Object Service: Object service is the main entry point for accessing data from the database and to return it back. Object service is responsible for materialization, which is a process of converting data returned from entity client data provider (next layer) to an entity object structure.
Entity Client(System.Data.EntityClient): The EntityClient provider uses storage-specific ADO.NET Data Provider classes and mapping metadata for interacting with entity data models.
Conceptual Schema Model: The conceptual model contains the model classes and their relationships. This will be independent of your database table design.
Mapping Concept: Mapping consists of information about how the conceptual model is mapped to a storage model.
Storage Schema mapping Model: Storage model is the database design model which includes tables, views, stored procedures, and their relationships and keys.
Entity Client Data Provider: The main responsibility of this layer is to convert L2E or Entity SQL queries into a SQL query which is understood by the underlying database. It communicates with the ADO.Net data provider which in turn sends or retrieves data from the database.

ADO.Net Data Provider: This layer communicates with the database using standard ADO.Net.

Check for changes to an SQL Server table?

Problem: Suppose your team is working on the under-development project so it might be possible continuous work on the database and perform changes in Table, Stored procedure as per requirement, and daily you have to update the testing server database as per changes are done in developing server database then how it is possible to trace those changes. There are a lot of solutions for this problem which is listed below Solution 1: For SQL Server 2000, 2005 and above use the CHECKSUM command SELECTCHECKSUM_AGG(BINARY_CHECKSUM(*))FROMYour_Table_NameWITH (NOLOCK); That will return the same number each time its run as long as the table contents haven't changed. Unfortunately CHECKSUM does not work always properly to detect changes. It is only a primitive checksum and no CRC calculation. Therefore you can't use it to detect all changes, e. g. symmetrical changes result in the same CHECKSUM! Solution 2: 1.Run the following query. Before executing query replace DB_Name with your database name…

How to drop multiple tables with common prefix in one query?

Problem: Suppose we have a situation where we need to drop those tables that have some prefixes string, so it is possible to drop those tables with a common prefix in a single query.
Solution: yes it is possible to drop all those tables that have the common prefix in a single query. Using following query you can delete all those tables that begin with a certain prefix string. In where condition just put the common prefix string in where condition (Like ‘prefix%’)
DECLARE@queryNVARCHAR(MAX)=N'';
SELECT@query+=' DROP TABLE ' +QUOTENAME(s.name) +'.'+QUOTENAME(t.name)+';' FROMsys.tablesASt INNERJOINsys.schemasASs ONt.[schema_id]=s.[schema_id] WHEREt.nameLIKE'MX_100%';
EXECsp_executesql@query;
This query may create an issue, if a table has a foreign key relationship, you'll either need to drop them first or arrange the output to drop the tables in a certain order. If you want to monitor exactly what goes on when the query is running then use the following que…
