deCast - Entity Framework Modeling: Implementing Table Per Hierarchy

Sign in to queue


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.
