Web services are everywhere and have become a normal part of our lives as developers and most of those services communicate with a database at some point. Building services in .Net got a lot easier with the introduction of WCF, but using any ORM solution with those services can be a bit tricky, especially if you are doing REST services. In this session we will look at what it takes to wire web services using the current version of Entity Framework as well as the new features coming in Entity Framework 4. We will look at several methods of building web services, including WCF, ASMX and REST in both WCF and Asp.net MVC. You will learn about the common issues with building any service with an ORM framework and how you can leverage the Entity Framework in building them.
