Coming Soon Entity Framework Won’t Suck
I hear that EF in .Net 4.0 will be a bit better. An experienced developer says:
A lot of the biggest issues I’ve had with EF … have been addressed in one way or another in the v2 that comes out with .NET 4. Self-tracking entities, POCO objects as entities, persistence ignorance, etc. etc. I don’t know how much they’ve improved the designer. The v2 looks much, much better. Generally, if you don’t see moving to .NET 4 in the medium term as likely, I would look seriously into nHibernate, but if .NET 4 is realistic, I would seriously consider EF v2.
