Entity Framework: finding out what SQL is executed behind the scene

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/05/25

I love the Entity Framework, but as with every layer of abstraction, sometimes you need to get underneath in order to solve problems.

For EF questions, I usually browse the presentationsblogarticles or Entity Framework book from Julie Lerman.
I met her first at an SDC conference years ago: she has a great way of explaining new concepts in an easy to grasp way, not being afraid to do a deep dive into technology when needed.

Her article MSDN Magazine: Data Points – Profiling Database Activity in the Entity Framework is a great way to start digging for the actual SQL being executed by EF on your behalf.

It has a balanced list of ways to get that SQL, and describes the pros and cons for each means.

The comments point you to some more ways.
