Last weekend I blogged about creating ADO.NET Data Service with the help of of Entity Framework Tools CTP. I do hope you had a good luck installing this tool but I just realized that I forgot to share with you my experience of the installation. The first time I tried to install it on my machine, I got the warning dialog saying the installation requires a patch for Visual Studio 2008.

ADO.NET Entity Framework and Data Services in action(Part 3: Consuming ADO.NET Data Services)
In Part 2 of this series, we created an ADO.NET Data Services that made the Northwind data available. In today's blog post we are going to talk about how to consume the Northwind service. You can interact with an ADO.NET data service from any application that can send an HTTP request to an ADO.NET data service URI, and that can process the response in the format that is returned from the data service. To demonstrate this, we will create an ASP.NET web site to displayed the data retrieved from our ......

ADO.NET Entity Framework and Data Services in action (Part 1: Introduction)
The ADO.NET Data Services framework lets you create and access flexible data services that are integrated with the Web. The services use URIs to locate and identify data, and use simple, well-known formats to represent the data, such as JSON and XML. Data is made available across the Web in the style of a representational state transfer (REST) resource collection that is addressable by using URIs. ADO.NET Data Services expose relational data by using the Entity Data Model as specified by the ADO.NET ......

ADO.NET Entity Framework and Data Services in action
I have always wanted to blog on the Entity Framework, not only because I am an early adopter of new technologies, but also because I actually created an entity framework myself on my previous job and I believe my whole mind-set was pretty close to Microsoft's design of the Entity Framework although I have to admit my stuff was nowhere near MS in terms of scalability and extensibility. I have been playing with Entity Framework since its debut (at that time its codename was "Astoria") in MIX 07 and ......
