System.Data.Entity.Core.EntityCommandExecutionException Occurred in MVC app Using EF

c# entity-framework

Question

I am about to create an Application Form with UUID as its unique key (not primary key).

I got the error:

An exception of type 'System.Data.Entity.Core.EntityCommandExecutionException' occurred in EntityFramework.SqlServer.dll but was not handled in user code Additional information: An error occurred while executing the command definition. See the inner exception for details.

Connection String To DB:

 connectionString="Data Source=(localdb)\v11.0; 
                   Initial Catalog=FormsContext; 
                   Integrated Security=True; 
                   MultipleActiveResultSets=True;
                   AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|Forms.mdf"
 providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"

FormsContext.cs:

namespace ApplicationForm.Models
{
    public class FormsContext : DbContext
    {
        public FormsContext() : base("name=FormsContext")
        {
        }

        public System.Data.Entity.DbSet<ApplicationForm.Models.Form> Forms { get; set; }
...

The database is like this:

 FormsContext->Forms->{id,uuid,first,last...}

I am not so sure what happened this time. Would anyone help me to go through this?

Edit/Resolution

I wasn't sure how to check Inner Exception and I did some research on this. So when I read the error message in the Inner Exception, I could solve my problem.

I found out what the bug was. The query field is 'firstname' but my table column name is 'first'. They did not match. Once I changed the DB column name, it was working again.

One must be diligent to keep each in sync if the database is always in flux.

Why?

EF is simply a set of mappings, a snapshot in time, and whether those mappings are to tables or stored procedures, it does not matter.

For any subtle change(s) to column names or foreign key constraints can have ripple effects to any old mappings and they need to be remapped/scaffolded into new structure(s); otherwise hence weird behaviors from old mappings.

At times, those effects can create obvious errors like you found or even more insidious non obvious logical errors which can provide working (compiled) software with subtle logic bugs. I have seen the logic bugs by experience and they do happen.

So always be wary to keep the EF mappings in sync.


I answered to a different EF question but in a similar vein.

I had run into a situation where in EF a mapped stored proc at runtime failed because an internal change in the stored proc saw that a sql cast had stripped out a column name from the result, and EF (mapped before the changed) failed. I have a screen shot in my answer which shows that EF/db changes can have a deleterious effect:

The data reader is incompatible . A member does not have a corresponding column in the data reader with the same name
