Hi Experts

Could you explain in what aspects adding the database inside App_Data folder is a better aproach that maintain it under SQL Manager Studio ?
Accordingly with my researches the database must be detatched from SQL Manager Studio to be added to the solution, isn't it?

If the database is added to App_Data folder an EDMX file must be created ?  

Thanks in advance

  • The App_Data folder has permissions set on it that will allow the Web page to read and write data to the database file. The folder also supports special syntax to enable using the DataDirectory relative path in connection strings.
  • It works with SQL Server Express (however it has some limitation), SQL Express is free, no costing for database.
  • App_Data folder is restricted folder by IIS, so user won't be able to get things from it, so it is safe.
  • You must need to open and close connection after using it in code; or you can use connection pooling to reduce live connections capacity.
  • It is not good if you are creating giant application which contains millions of data and have huge active connections!

If the database is added to App_Data folder an EDMX file must be created ?  
  • EDMX (Entity Data Model in XML format) is Entity Framework container, to get the complete database information easily to the developer. So if you would to access database easily, EF will allows you to do that!

Hope this will clear your doubts!
