Unit of Work and Entity Framework

The Unit of Work pattern is a really useful pattern that I really haven’t given a lot of thought to for some reason. Generally it just seems to need very little attention. I guess frameworks around us shield us from it… But I guess it the more you learn, the more you think of, and the more time you spend working on things that you previously never invested much thought in.

Anyhow, recently, working with Entity Framework (yes…it is another EF post…) I realized that this pattern is really key to a lot of things, and it isn’t always that easy to implement. So I decided to Google it and borrow heavily from some smarter person than me who had already built a nice solution for it. Unfortunately, all the information I found regarding UoW and EF was overly simplified, and generally based around abstracting away EF in a single repository.
