Entity Framework–where to put the data folder

In your folder structure, where shoul you put the edmx data folder?

  1. As all EDMX files are representations (abstractions) of some relational database, they belong in the Models folder.
  2. The one exception would be file based datasources (mda files, excel files, SQL CE mdf files…) – which could be placed in the App_Data folder.
