Entity Framework Sample Provider for Visual Studio 2008 SP1 Beta is Online

We have just published an updated Sample ADO.NET Provider for Entity Framework. 

Changes in the provider APIs since Beta3 release:

  • removed DbProviderServices.GetProviderManifest(DbConnection)
  • added DbProviderServices.GetProviderManifestToken(DbConnection)
  • completely redesigned CSDL/SSDL/MSL for SchemaInformation
  • changed the format of the provider manifest XML:
     - DefaultValue vs Default
     - removed facets from functions
  • added DbProviderManifest.Token/DbProviderManifest.Provider properties

Provider writers can get the source code from MSDN Code Gallery: http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/EFSampleProvider
