Entity Data Model Tools Scenarios

The topics in this section describe how to use the ADO.NET Entity Data Model Designer in common application scenarios.

NoteNote

Many of the walkthrough topics in this section use the CourseManager application (from the Entity Framework Quickstart) as a starting point. For these walkthroughs, we recommend that you use a copy of the CourseManager application, instead of editing the original CourseManager code. You can download the completed Course Manager as both a Visual Basic project and a C# project from the MSDN Code Gallery Web site.
