Books Authors Web Service Schemas (EDM Sample Application)

.NET Framework 3.5

The three Entity Data Model (EDM) entities and two EDM associations used by the Books Authors Web Service described in this Books group of topics are implemented in the following schemas and mapping specification.

Conceptual Schema

The following schema declares and defines entities and associations using conceptual schema definition language (CSDL).

Store Metadata

The following schema defines the storage structures used by applications built on the entities and associations defined in the previous schema. Storage metadata is specified by using store schema definition language (SSDL).

Mapping Specification

The following syntax maps entities and associations defined in the CSDL schema to storage metadata in the store schema definition language (SSDL) schema. This mapping specification is written in mapping specification language (MSL).

The following script can be used to create the database used in this example. To create the BooksAuthors database and schema with SQL Server Management Studio:

  1. On the File menu, point to New, and then click Database Engine Query.

  2. In the Connect to Database Engine dialog box, type either localhost or the name of the SQL Server instance, and then click Connect.

  3. Paste the following Transact-SQL script in the query window and then click Execute.
