Exercises: Introduction to Entity Framework

This document defines the exercise assignments for the "Databases Advanced – Entity Framework" course @ Software University. Please submit your solutions in Judge.

Import the SoftUni Database

Import the SoftUni database into SQL Management Studio by executing the provided .sql script.

Database First

Model the existing database by using Database First.

First create a new empty ConsoleApplication and after it is created right click on the project and add a new item. In the newly appeared window select ADO.NET Entity Data Model and call it SoftuniContext as shown below: 


Choose your server name (SQL management studio connection) and the database you wish to model. 

Select the latest stable Entitiy Framework version.

Select the tables the desired tables from the target database. Exclude any views and stored procedures.

Click finish. The result should be all the tables that are in your table, generated as classes: 

Entity Framework has successfully mapped the database schema to C# classes. However, it isn't quite good with names (See the Employee class) - e.g. Employees1, Employee1. Edit the properties and give them more proper names.

Finally, before we begin working with the data, please create a new folder in the project called Models and insert your models in it. (Don’t forget to change the namespace, once the models are moved).

Employees full information

Let's start writing C# queries! Your task is to extract all employees print their first, last and middle name, their job title and salary separated with a space. (Test in judge)

Employees with Salary Over 50 000

Your task is to extract all employees with salary over 50000. Create a new context and use lambdas to build your query. Make sure the query returns only the first names of those employees.

Use Express Profiler and check if the made query by Entity Framework is correct (there is only one query, but there may be more that are performed by EF for checks).

Employees from Seattle

Extract all employees from the Research and Development department. Order them by salary (in ascending order), then by first name (in descending order). Print only their first name, last name, department name and salary in the format shown below:


Use Express Profiler and check if the made query by Entity Framework is correct (there is only one query).

Adding a New Address and Updating Employee

Create a new address with text "Vitoshka 15" and TownId 4. Set that address to the employee with last name “Nakov”.

The above code should successfully insert a new address in the database and set it as Nakov's new address.

Then order by descending all the employees by their Address’ Id, take 10 rows and from them, take the AddressText. Print the results each on a new line:

Delete Project by Id

Let's delete a project by id(2). Sounds simple:

However, …

The project is referenced by the junction (many-to-many) table EmployeesProjects. Therefore we cannot safely delete it. First, we need to remove any references to that row in the Projects table. 

This is done by removing the project from all employees who reference it. Tip: Get those employees from the Employee navigation property.

Then take 10 projects, select their names and print them on the console each on a new line. 

Test in judge. 

Find employees in period

Find the first 30 employees who have projects started in the time period 2001 - 2003 (inclusive). Print each employee's first name, last name and manager’s first name and each of their projects' name, start date, end date. Here is the format: 

“first Name lastName managerFirstName”

“—projectName projectStart projectEnd”

Test in judge

Addresses by town name 

Find all addresses, ordered by the number of employees who live there (descending), then by town name (ascending). Take only the first 10 addresses. For each address print it in the format 

“addressText, townName – numberOfEmployees employees”

Test in judge

Employee with id 147 sorted by project names 

Get an employee with id 147. Print only his/her first name, last name, job title and projects (print only their names). The projects should be ordered by name (ascending). Format of the output: 

“first Name lastName job Title”


Test in judge

Departments with more than 5 employees

Find all departments with more than 5 employees. Order them by employee count (ascending).Print the department name, manager’s first name and first name, last name and job title of every employee. Format of the output:

“department.Name manager.FirstName”

“employee1.FirstName employee1.LastName employee1.JobTitle”

*Native SQL Query

Find all employees who have projects with start date in the year 2002. Select only their first name. Solve this task by using both LINQ query and native SQL query through the context. 

Measure the difference in performance in both cases with a Stopwatch. 

Tip: Use the context.Database.SqlQuery<T>() method for executing native SQL queries.

* Play with the SQL Server Profiler

Your task is to use the SQL Server ExpressProfiler to view all your queries from the previous homework task. 

* Explore the Full Source Code of Entity Framework

Your task is to download (clone the repository) and explore the full source code of Entity Framework. You can find it on http://entityframework.codeplex.com. Do not submit anything for this problem.

Find Latest 10 Projects

Write a program that prints information about last 10 started projects. Print their name, description, start and end date and sort them by name lexicographically. Format of the output: 

“Name Description StartDate EndDate”

Test in judge

Increase Salaries

Write a program that increase salaries of all employees that are in the Engineering, Tool Design, Marketing or Information Services department by 12%. Then print first name, last name and salary for those employees whose salary was increased. Format of the output: 

“FirstName LastName $Salary”

Test in judge

Remove Towns

Write a program that deletes town which name is given as an input. Also, delete all addresses that are in those towns. Print on the console the number addresses that were deleted. You may also note that there are some Employees in that have addresses which may be a problem for deleting the addresses. So first off start by setting the AddressID of each employee in for the given address to null. After all of them are set to null, you may safely remove all the addresses from the context.Addresses and finally remove the given town. You may test this task locally, so that you can see what happens for more than 1 case of deletion.





1 address in Sofia was deleted


44 addresses in Seattle were deleted

Find Employees by First Name starting with ‘SA’

Write a program that finds all employees whose first name starts with ‘SA’. Print their first, last name, their job title and salary in the format given in the example below.

FirstName LastName – JobTitle - ($Salary)
