Metadata Type Hierarchy

[This topic is pre-release documentation and is subject to change in future releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

The ADO.NET metadata type hierarchy represents a set of .NET Framework types that enable developers to interact with the Entity Data Model (EDM) metadata. The type hierarchy provides programmatic support to represent the same concepts discussed in the EDM Specifications.

This section describes how the System.Data.Metadata.Edm namespace represents concepts defined in the EDM in the Entity Framework.
