Update to EF5 and DbLocal Default in Config

A few weeks ago I wrote a blog post showing how EF5 uses DbLocal as its default database along with a screenshot of the configuration info that EF5 puts into your config (web.config or app.config) of the project that you’ve installed EF5 into.

Since then, EF5 Beta 2 was released and the details have changed ever so slightly.

Now, instead of having a SqlConnectionFactory and critical elements of a connection string, we have a new factory, the LocalDbConnectionFactory.

Here is what the element looks like with EF5 Beta 2:

  <entityFramework>
    <defaultConnectionFactory 
type="System.Data.Entity.Infrastructure.LocalDbConnectionFactory, EntityFramework"> <parameters> <parameter value="v11.0" /> </parameters> </defaultConnectionFactory> </entityFramework>
