The Entity Framework provides the ability to model rich conceptual layers that meet the needs of our applications.  One such model is table-per-hierarchy inheritance.  In this model, the data for a hierarchy are stored in one table.  This table has a discriminator column that indicates the "type" of each record.  In this screencast, Rob Bagby will illustrate how to implement table-per-hierarchy inheritance with the entity framework.  Click here to see Rob's blog post on the same subject.
