An ORM is a tool that you use to model a database as objects (i.e. classes) within your code, often times including its programmability (i.e. stored procs/functions) as well.

EF is considered by many to be an ORM, but there are some who think otherwise.

NHibernate is an ORM.

Thank you.

How do I get started using EF is that something that comes with VS or do I have to install it?
