System.Data.EntityClient Namespace

The System.Data.EntityClient namespace is the .NET Framework Data Provider for the Entity Framework.

The EntityClient provider uses storage-specific ADO.NET Data Provider classes and mapping metadata for interacting with entity data models. EntityClient translates operations performed on conceptual entities into operations performed on physical data sources. It translates result sets returned from physical data sources into conceptual entities.

Note Note

For more information about how to use this namespace in Entity Framework applications, see ADO.NET Entity Framework.
