Seperate your EMD to 3 files

When you generate your EMDX, you medata data is embedded in the output assembly as resource files. So you you connection string looks like "metadata=res://*/Model1.csdl|res://*/Model1.ssdl|res://*/Model1.msl" . But you have an option to save your metadata in loose file, so that your connection string will be something like "metadata=.\Model1.csdl|.\Model1.ssdl|.\Model1.msl"
