Entity Framework Supports Code First Development Approach
Microsoft's Entity Framework 1 was initially replease as part of Visual Studio 2008 SP1. It was created as an object-relational mapping (OR/M) tool that is used to create an abstraction layer on top of ADO.NET namespaces with two methodologies: Database First approach and Model First.
Now there's a new approach available: Entity Framework Code First. It enables developers to use nothing but code--ditching the previous requirement of using designer or .edmx files to create the domain model.
The idea behind Code First is to provide a simple API for an EDM runtime configuration, which provides a second alternative. This allows developers to write code and utilize conventions for configurations and modeling, rather than XML files.
