ADO EF - Ассоциации отображения ошибок между производными типами в TPH

c# entity-framework orm

Вопрос

Фон

Я пишу библиотеку доступа к данным с использованием ADO Entity Framework в Visual Studio 2008 SP1 с использованием .NET Framework 3.5 SP1. Я пытаюсь создать ассоциации между двумя объектами, которые оба являются производными от абстрактного типа. Я представляю обе иерархии наследования сущностей, используя Table Per Hierarchy (TPH), что означает, что есть только две таблицы - одна для каждой иерархии наследования сущностей.

ПРИМЕЧАНИЕ. Чтобы избежать этой проблемы, можно использовать Table Per Type (TPT), но у него есть свои недостатки. Смотрите здесь и здесь для более подробной информации при выборе между моделями сохранения наследования.

Вот снимок экрана конструктора Entity Model:

Предположения

При создании связей в ADO Entity Framework Designer между производными типами, моделируемыми с помощью TPH с использованием Visual Studio 2008 с пакетом обновления 1 (SP1) и .NET Framework 3.5 с пакетом обновления 1 (SP1), вы, вероятно, получите следующее сообщение об ошибке «Ошибка 3034: два объекта с разными ключами сопоставлены одному и тому же». строка. Убедитесь, что эти два фрагмента сопоставления не сопоставляют две группы сущностей с перекрывающимися ключами одной и той же группе строк. "

Исходя из того, что я прочитал в Интернете , чтобы решить эту проблему, вы должны добавить условие для связи с внешним ключом следующим образом:

<Condition ColumnName="Endpoint1" IsNull="false" />

Вот снимок экрана этого редактирования для ассоциации PersonPersonToPerson1:

Ограничения

  • Базовые классы каждой иерархии (т. Е. Node и Link) должны быть абстрактными.
  • Свойства навигации из ассоциаций между двумя производными типами должны различаться по типу ссылки (например, PersonToPerson и PersonToLocation). Это означает, что вы не можете создавать ассоциации между абстрактными базовыми классами Link и Node.

Проблема:

Когда я создаю Модель сущности, как описано выше, и добавляю Условия в AssociationMappings, как описано в Предположениях выше, я получаю «Ошибка 3023» при построении / проверке модели.

Error   1   Error 3023: Problem in Mapping Fragments starting at lines 146, 153, 159, 186, 195, 204, 213: Column Link.Endpoint1 has no default value and is not nullable. A column value is required to store entity data.
An Entity with Key (PK) will not round-trip when:
((PK is NOT in 'LinkSet' EntitySet OR PK does NOT play Role 'PersonToPerson' in AssociationSet 'PersonPersonToPerson1') AND (PK is in 'LinkSet' EntitySet OR PK plays Role 'PersonToPerson' in AssociationSet 'PersonPersonToPerson1' OR PK plays Role 'PersonToPerson' in AssociationSet 'PersonPersonToPerson'))

Сущность Entity Framework в описанном выше сценарии заключается в том, что существует два свойства, которые сопоставляются одним и тем же внешним ключам. Например, столбец и внешний ключ для Endpoint1 сопоставляются со свойством Person в производном типе PersonToLocation и сопоставляются со свойством Leader в производном типе PersonToPerson.

Я не понимаю, почему это проблема. Поскольку свойства Leader / Follower находятся только в производном типе PersonToPerson, а не в любом другом производном типе или базовом типе, и то же самое относится и к свойству Person / Location, почему поля TypeDiscriminator недостаточно для EF, чтобы выяснить, какой установить данный ряд принадлежит?

Мне кажется, что если вы имеете дело с объектом, где TypeDiscriminator = 1, вы помещаете Endpoint1 в Leader и Endpoint2 в Follower. Аналогично, если вы имеете дело с объектом, где TypeDiscriminator = 2, вы помещаете Endpoint1 в Person и Endpoint2 в Location.

Вопрос:

Как вы решаете ошибку 3023, чтобы эти ассоциации возникали?

ИЛИ ЖЕ

Как вы создаете тип связей в ADO Entity Framework, который я описал выше?

Принятый ответ

Возможное решение

  1. Создайте отдельный столбец для каждой ассоциации между производными типами и сделайте каждый из этих столбцов обнуляемым
  2. Создайте внешний ключ между каждым из этих новых столбцов и таблицей первичного ключа.
  3. Сопоставьте каждую связь в вашей модели сущности с конкретным уникальным столбцом и внешним ключом, чтобы каждый столбец и внешний ключ использовались только один раз.

Проблемы

Это довольно нежелательное решение, потому что оно разбивает количество нужных вам столбцов.

  • Больше столбцов - добавление столбца для каждой связи между производными типами приводит к увеличению количества столбцов.
  • Пустые столбцы В случае TPH это означает, что в вашей таблице будет много пустых столбцов.
  • SQL JOIN - переключение с TPH на TPT, чтобы избежать количества пустых столбцов, приводит к тому, что EF необходимо использовать JOIN, что должно происходить очень часто (почти каждый раз, когда вы работаете с любым из производных типов).
  • Рефакторинг Если вы добавите производный тип в будущем, вам нужно не только обновить модель Entity (* .edmx) и ее отображение, но вам также придется изменить схему базы данных, добавив дополнительные столбцы!

пример

Для приведенного выше примера Link / Node полученная схема базы данных будет выглядеть так:
