Accepted Answer

POCOs(Plain old CLR objects) are simply entities of your Domain. Normally when we use entity framework the entities are generated automatically for you. This is great but unfortunately these entities are interspersed with database access functionality which is clearly against the SOC (Separation of concern). POCOs are simple entities without any data access functionality but still gives the capabilities all EntityObject functionalities like

  • Lazy loading
  • Change tracking

Here is a good start for this

You can also generate POCOs so easily from your existing Entity framework project using Code generators.
