‘POCO’ definition


“Plain Old C# Object”

Just a normal class, no attributes describing infrastructure concerns or other responsibilities that your domain objects shouldn’t have.

EDIT – as other answers have stated, it is technically “Plain Old CLR Object” but I, like David Arno comments, prefer “Plain Old Class Object” to avoid ties to specific languages or technologies.

TO CLARIFY: In other words, they don’t derive from some special base class, nor do they return any special types for their properties.
