Hi all,
I am writing an application that reads xml files and imports data to sql server 2008 database. I am using entity framework in VS2010 . I can add rows to tables in two ways
1. use stored procedures
2. use entity framework objects by creating an row entry object and inserting it to the db.
 ex:
  SystemTable st = new SystemTable();
   st.Name = "aaaaa";
   database.AddToSystemTable(st);
   database.SaveChanges();


 here is my question:
Which approach do you suggest? Is there any performance difference?

Adding rows in a table will always be faster using stored procedures. Keep it within the database engine scope and it will be significantly better if you can measure it.

Yeah, keep it all on the server in Stored Procedures - you have a degree of flexibility by being able to enhance the stored procedure if needed without too much impact.

Also keeps server objects on the server and can tune / control performance a bit more. Especially important as data changes with volume over time.
