Based on the above class diagram, we will create a new simple 3-layered application using the entities defined in the above domain model. We will create a new ASP.NET Web Project in VS. This time, you should create two new folders inside your root web folder (using the Add New Folder option in VS):

  • BL: This folder will contain all of the business logic domain classes

  • DAL: This folder will contain the data access code files (for each entity)

Layer 1: Data Access Layer (DAL)

First, we will create a DAL class for each entity. We will name each DAL class using this naming pattern: EntityDAL. Let us see the CustomerDAL class:

using DomainModel.BL;
namespace DomainModel.DAL
public class CustomerDAL
public static void AddCustomer(Customer cs)
using (SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(SQLHelper.GetConnectionString()))
SqlParameter[] par = new SqlParameter[4];
par[0] = new SqlParameter("@customerID", cs.ID);
par[0].Direction = ParameterDirection...
