Programming Entity Framework 2nd Edition (based on the RTM of VS2010/.NET 4.0) is currently available on Safari Rough Cuts at http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596807252. At this point most of the chapters are there. You’ll find 2-23. Note that chapter 4 will be broken into 4 and 5 in the final edition. I changed the chapter numbering after chapter 16 to accommodate this which is why there is no chapter 17. Chapters 24 is about n-Tier CLient applications using an WPF example and chapter 25 is about n-Tier web apps with ASP.NET MVC and ASP.NET WebForms examples both using the repository built in Chapter 22. Chapter 1 will be introductory as it was in the first edition and Chapter 26 will wrap up some loose ends.
The book is now going through copy editing and technical editing so if you read the rough cuts and find a comma missing, don’t worry about it. If you happen to find something really wrong…a coding boo-boo or a misused term (I’m famous for switching inherits and implements) leave a note in the online feedback form on O’Reilly’s site so we can be sure to correct it before the final cut.
This is a complete rewrite of the book and includes not only the new features of Entity Framework, but chapters on unit testing, building repositories and even using Entity Framework in ASP.NET MVC applications. I’ve been working extra hard to be sure the book is current, not just a copy of the first edition.
We’re hoping to have the book in print by mid-July.
