Visual Studio 2010 RC and Entity Framework 4 RC Support in the New Version of ADO.NET
Devart has recently announced the release of dotConnect products for Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQLite - ADO.NET providers that offer Entity Framework support, LINQ to SQL support, and contain an ORM model designer for developing LINQ to SQL and EF models based on different database engines.
New dotConnect ADO.NET providers offer complete support for Visual Studio 2010 Release Candidate and Entity Framework 4 Release Candidate.
Entity Developer 2.80, a designer for modeling and code generation for ADO.NET Entity Framework and LINQ to SQL, included in Professional Edition of every dotConnect, was greatly improved. Now Entity Developer seamlessly integrates with Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Studio 2010 Release Candidate. Entity Developer LINQ to SQL and Entity Framework models can be edited inside Visual Studio without any need to open the model in a separate Entity Developer application. You can use Entity Developer for creating models for both Entity Framework 1 and Entity Framework 4 Release Candidate. For example, such feature as Lazy Loading is now supported for Entity Framework 4 Release Candidate models.
dotConnect for Oracle, MySQL, and PostgreSQL now support both Entity Developer and Entity Data Model Wizard/Update Wizard for designing Entity Framework models in Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Studio 2010 Release Candidate.
Model First was supported with templates for generating DDL script for MySQL, Oracle, and PostgreSQL. Now you can design an Entity Framework model for your application and then create a database automatically.
Support for new Entity Framework canonical aggregate and scalar functions was added to dotConnect data providers, and you may use standard database functions in LINQ queries.
