Data is the bedrock of any API. Learn how to use Entity Framework Core to build light classes that represent data models.
- [Instructor] One great thing about Entity Framework…is that you can use simple classes to represent…database entities.…These are sometimes called POCOs,…or plain old CLR objects.…Let's create a model that will represent a room…stored in the database.…I'll do this in the models folder…and create a class called room entity.…This entity will have three properties.…We'll give it a Guid ID.…We'll give it a string name.…
And also, we'll give it an int rate.…I'm storing the rate as an int here…because storing decimals with the correct precision…can be a little tricky.…Instead of dealing with that,…I'll just cheat and store the prices as cents,…as long as I remember to divide by 100 later.…Next, let's create the resource that the API…will actually return to the client.…This will also go in the models folder,…and I'll call this simply room.…This one will inherit from resource.…
And we'll add only two properties here.…A string name.…And a decimal rate.…You'll notice that this room resource…doesn't contain the ID property…because the href coming from resource…
