Comparative Analysis of ADO.NET and Entity Framework Performance Evaluation in Database Operations
Keywords:ADO.NET, Entity Framework, Database, Performance
This paper aims to compare the performance of ADO.NET and Entity Framework in various database operations, including insert, update, delete, and retrieve. The study investigates the execution times of these operations and analyzes the findings to determine the efficiency of each technology.
The research findings reveal that ADO.NET consistently outperforms Entity Framework in terms of execution time for insert, update, and delete operations. ADO.NET demonstrates faster execution times, indicating its effectiveness and efficiency in handling these database tasks. However, in the retrieve operation, Entity Framework unexpectedly demonstrates superior performance, suggesting its efficacy in retrieving data.
These results emphasize the importance of considering the specific requirements and performance characteristics of ADO.NET and Entity Framework when choosing the appropriate technology for different database tasks. Organizations and developers need to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of each technology based on their specific needs.
Further research and analysis are necessary to delve deeper into the underlying factors contributing to the performance differences observed in this study. This research provides valuable insights into the performance comparison of ADO.NET and Entity Framework and serves as a foundation for future investigations in this area, facilitating informed decision-making in database technology selection.
