    hi dears,

    in my new project that is a enterprise application I want to use  entity framework 4 with poco

    my DAL is provider base and I use a factory that decide which provider should use base on configuration

    the providers are private assemblies.

    as I saw in manu articles about entity framework I should use repository and unit of work patterns now my question is where should I place this patterns ,in my provider of entity framework or inside of bussiness logic

    remember that I dont want that my application work only with EF,I will create a normal provider that use sql stored procedures and maybe another techniques.

    if you can please explain the relation and way of implementing this patterns

    thanks alot
