DATA ACCESS LAYER
BizDataX Design Components provide toolbar items to support common entity framework tasks. BuildEntityConnectionStringshape provides support for parameterized creation of a connection string which is needed during execution of the package.SaveDataContextChanges activity provides support for saving changes tracked by the model.
One could use any .Net compatible object-relational mapping tool or any other strategy to produce objects from relational data. This is because BizDataX does not make assumptions about Entity Framework usage.
In fact, BizDataX could work with any set of .Net objects. I.e. one could use LINQ To XML,custom entity objects that utilize stored procedures to manipulate data or similar. However, we recommend Entity Framework because it is an industry standard and comes with a comprehensive Visual Studio support.
