How to: Manually Define an Entity Data Model (Entity Framework)

This topic shows how to manually create the mapping files that define the AdventureWorks Sales Entity Data Model (EDM). The AdventureWorks Sales Model is a subset of the complete AdventureWorks model that is used throughout the task-related topics in the Entity Framework documentation. If you manually generate mapping files, you will still have to configure your Visual Studio project to use the Entity Framework. For more information, see How to: Manually Configure an Entity Framework Project.

NoteNote

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

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:

To create the mapping specification language (MSL) file

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