MVC 5 with EF 6 in Visual Basic - Creating a More Complex Data Model

13 June 2014 13:38

VB.Net ASP.NET MVC Entity Framework

This tutorial is the sixth in a series of 12 that teach you how to build MVC 5 applications using Entity Framework for data access and Visual Basic. In the previous tutorials you worked with a simple data model that was composed of three entities. In this tutorial you'll add more entities and relationships, and you'll customize the data model by specifying formatting, validation, and database mapping rules. You'll see two ways to customize the data model:  by adding attributes to entity classes and by adding code to the database context class.

VB.Net ASP.NET MVC Entity Framework

This tutorial is the fifth in a series of 12 that teach you how to build MVC 5 applications using Entity Framework for data access and Visual Basic. This tutorial covers how to enable Code First Migrations and then deploy your database to Windows Azure. The Migrations feature enables you to change the data model and deploy your changes to production by updating the database schema without having to drop and re-create the database. The section covering deployment to Azure is optional; you can continue with the remaining tutorials without having deployed the project.
