Custom membership provider implementation for the ADO.NET Entity Framework.

Introduction

Note: This article has been superseded by the following code project article. 

This article describes the implementation of a custom membership provider for the ADO.NET entity framework. The code presented in this article fully complies with Microsoft's provider model design pattern. It also leverages the LINQ to Entities feature introduced with framework 3.5.

Background

It is required to have a basic understanding of the ADO.NET Entity Framework and the ASP.NET membership provider model in order to successfully integrate the presented solution.

Using the code

To configure the attached sample, the following steps have to be taken into account:

  1. Create a database (e.g., EFDataModel).
  2. Run the CreateUserTable.sql script located in the DatabaseScripts solution folder.
  3. Modify the connection string for the Entity Framework in the App.config file of the SmartSoft.EFMembershipProvider.DataLayer project.
  4. Modify connection string for the Entity Framework in the Web.config file of the Web application.

If you want to integrate the custom membership provider into your existing application, you might have to replace the object context EFDataModelEntities within the membership provider class according to your entity model.

Depending on your data model, the method DeleteUser within the membership provider class has to be extended from line 698 onwards in order to delete/mark all user related data.

I understand your objection. However, the membership provider functionality is elaborately described in the MSDN. I did not want to rewrite a documentation about that, thus the requirements to understand the membership provider model. Same applies for the ADO.NET Entity Framework, the MSDN is the right place to learn about it for newbies.
 
The published solution is meant as reusable component and does exactly the same as the SqlMembershipProvider but it utilize SQL to Entities rather than SQL statements.
 
I don't see what there might be to decipher for anyone?
 
From my understanding Codeproject is meant to be a platform to exchange solutions rather than a mirror of the MSDN.
 
Cheers
