  Asked By: Rachel    Date: Jul 24    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2229

Can someone tell me what is the difference betweeh SpecificFinder and Finder methods?

I came across a sample, that queries using CustomerID in NWind DB using Finder method
and another one that queries using CustomerID and City in NWind DB using SpecificFinder method

SpecificFinder is meant to find "one specific  instance" of the entity
Finder is meant to find "zero, one or more instances" for an entity

for example

Customer GetCustomer(int id);
Customer[] GetCustomers(string filter);

From the above methods, GetCustomer can become specific finder  whereas GetCustomers can become finder.
