Entity Framework with Design Pattern Framework


I'm starting to design systems using the Entity Framework version 5+.  How does one use this framework with the Design Pattern Framework?  

I realized that the Entity Framework pretty much replaces the DAL layer.
Are there any examples available for using this?

The DAL layer contains a folder for EF. Just remember the mapper functions map between Domain Business Objects and Data Entities. Do NOT fall into the trap of using the POCO's generated by EF as Domain Business objects.

Not sure I'm understanding. In the code example there is a folder with Entity Framework. You just have to change your web.config to point to your data store.
