I developed and entity framework (.edmx) application in 4.0 in that i got all the data of my querying table and its foreign key referenced tables data also. but when i change my project to 3.5 i am unable to get the data of foreign key referenced tables data. Please help me out...
In EF4 lazy loading is included and is on by default.
No such luck in prior versions: You may need to add an .Include() to fetch the other data automatically (eager loading) or call Load() on the references to load them (manually).
If the reference table was say "Details" you would do ...
var featuredOffers = context.Hosters_FeaturedOffer.Include("Details").ToList();
BTW: Do a search for "strongly typed Include" too - there are some extension methods people have written to remove the magic string and replace it with a compile time checked lambda expression.
For the future answers if you are using newer version of EF;
var o = db.Order.Include(i => i.User).Include(i => i.OrderItem).FirstOrDefault(x=>x.OrderId == orderId);
