What's the difference between [Computed] and [Write(false)] attributes?

This resource explains how Computed excludes a property (in an update only?).

Specifie the property should be excluded from update.

public class InvoiceContrib
{ [Key] public int InvoiceID { get; set; } public string Code { get; set; } public InvoiceKind Kind { get; set; } [Write(false)] [Computed] public string FakeProperty { get; set; }
using (var connection = My.ConnectionFactory())
{ connection.Open(); var invoices = connection.GetAll<InvoiceContrib>().ToList(); // The FakeProperty is skipped invoices.ForEach(x => x.FakeProperty += "z"); var isSuccess = connection.Update(invoices);

Doesn't Write(false) fulfill the same purpose though? What's the difference between [Computed] and [Write(false)]?


I've just checked the resource linked in response to my question. It almost hits the nail on this! Could someone please confirm if both attributes perform the same operations, but are just worded in two different ways, as to give a better abstraction to their users?
