Sample app which uses these DTO's?

Is there a sample app which shows how the DTO's are used?

Hello abdu.

You can download Solution named EntitiesToDTOs-TestingProjects to test the tool. It contains EDMX files for AdventureWorks Databases (3 projects) and Northwind (1 project).

Still, these projects don't show you how to implement DTO Pattern since this is not the purpose of the tool, the objective of this tool is to generate DTOs and anything related to them to use in the DTO Pattern.

If I have the time I will add a sample application using the DTOs, but don't rely on this.

I really recommend you this book

Professional ASP.NET Design Patterns

it's the best book to start learning good architectures(because there are a lot)

DTO is not the objective but only the tool, you can choose other architectures using POCO, Entities..

Nice book indeed.

Another great book on architecture:

Microsoft® Application Architecture Guide, 2nd Edition (Patterns & Practices) (amazon link)
