    I have a set of classes already and I am trying to map them to database.
    However, some of my properties are complex types such as custom class, structure.
    How can I persist those properties using complex types?

    Here are sample codes similar to my classes.
    I need to persist Book class to database.
    How do I configure the MainAuthor, CoAuthor and Index properties (in forward mapping wizard or other ways)?


    Public Class Book
        Public Property Title As String
        Public Property PublishDate As Date
        Public Property Publisher As String
        Public Property ISBN As String
        Public Property MainAuthor As Author
        Public Property CoAuthor As Author
        Public Property Index As BookIndexCode
    End Class
    Public Class Author
        Public Property FirstName As String
        Public Property LastName As String
        Public Property Expertise As String
    End Class
    Public Structure BookIndexCode
        Dim Category As Integer
        Dim Subcategory As Integer
        Dim Segment As Integer
        Dim SerialNumber As Integer
    End Structure
