How to: Manually Define the Model and Mapping Files

This topic shows how to manually create the AdventureWorks Sales Model model and mapping files. If you manually generate the model and mapping files, you still must configure your Visual Studio project to use the Entity Framework. For more information, see How to: Manually Configure an Entity Framework Project.

If you use the Entity Data Model Wizard in a Visual Studio project, it automatically generates an .edmx file and configures the project to use the Entity Framework. For more information, see How to: Use the Entity Data Model Wizard.

To create the store schema definition language (SSDL) file

  • Add a file called AdventureWorks.ssdl to your project directory and paste in the following content:
