Is Self-Tracking entity supported in Entity Framework 5? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can't seem to find the T4 template for self tracking entities in Entity Framework 5.  Are STEs no longer supported in EF 5?  If so, what is the recommended alternative?

  • Hi,

    The page we have about STEs is here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/data/jj613924

    The alternatives that we have are here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/data/jj613668

    Basically we don't recommend that people use STEs anymore, there are a few alternatives in the second link I provided.


    We are seeing a lot of great Entity Framework questions (and answers) from the community on Stack Overflow. As a result, our team is going to spend more time reading and answering questions posted on Stack Overflow. We would encourage you to post questions on Stack Overflow using the entity-framework tag. We will also continue to monitor the Entity Framework forum.
