Hi all

right now I am working in analyzing a multiuser project. I will use WPF with C#, and the Database will be SQL 2012. In previous project I used sql statement to connect to database. While reading I found many suggestion to use LINQ TO SQL.

Could anyone help me in this matter.

Hi Almatrodi;

I think you will find that Linq to Entity Framework will be a better technology to use over Linq to SQL. Please see this web site for some tutorials, Get Started with Entity Framework (EF).

Hi Almatrodi;

Entity Framework as well as Linq to SQL are built on top of ADO.Net and both have methods to handle conflicts. So yes Entity Framework can be used in a multiuser environment.
