Wrox Blox: Migrating to LINQ to SQL in TheBeerHouse and ASP.NET 2.0 Website Programming Problem Design SolutionThis Wrox Blox demonstrates various LINQ to SQL techniques to use in upgrading the “Articles” portion of TheBeerHouse application. The first step is migrating TheBeerHouse project from an ASP.NET 2.0 to an ASP.NET 3.5 application. Next, create a LINQ to SQL class (DBML) mapping file that will encapsulate the entire Data Access Layer for this project. Readers will become comfortable working with Entities (Tables), navigating Associations (Relationships), and working with stored procedures from a LINQ standpoint, throughout the implementation.
