You can use the Administration client object model to create, read, update, and delete metadata objects in the BDC Metadata Store from the client. This object model provides complete metadata validation at publishing time and maintains referential integrity across the store. For performance, it uses an in-memory metadata cache. However, this means that this object model has a relatively high latency and a delay of up to a minute before the BDC updates the cache in all the front-end Web servers and application servers in the deployment.
