Devart dotConnect Data Providers Come With New Greatly Improved Model Designer.
Devart announced the release of the new versions of ADO.NET data providers dotConnect for Oracle 6.10, dotConnect for MySQL 6.10, dotConnect for PostgreSQL 5.10 and dotConnect for SQLite 3.10.
dotConnect data providers are the enhanced database connectivity solutions built over ADO.NET architecture with support for Entity Framework and LinqConnect ORM solutions. New versions of dotConnect data providers contain new greatly improved model designer and code generation tool - Entity Developer with significant technical advancements.
The new version of Entity Developer delivers greatly improved support for large models and automatic generation of sequences and triggers for Autoincrement properties in Oracle
Working with Large Models
The ability to create several diagrams per model was supported in new Entity Developer to bring developers the most convenient working with large models.
In case of large models containing many entities, the diagram may become too complex to understand and edit. To make your model better understandable, new Entity Developer allows splitting the model into several thematic diagrams, each one having a part of model entities. For example, all entities, related to sales may be placed on one diagram, and production entities - to another diagram.
Managing diagrams is very easy. Model diagrams are displayed in the Diagrams node of the conceptual model in the Model Explorer. Here you can add a new diagram to your model, remove or rename existing model diagrams at any time.
If you generate a model from a database, you can split model into diagrams by schemas or create only one default diagram with all or part of the entities.
Model can have as many diagrams as you need, and each diagram may contain any model entities. When creating a new diagram, you may immediately choose model entities to display on it.
Generating Sequences and Triggers for Autoincrement properties
Generating and updating Oracle database from model becomes easier and more perspicuous with automatic generation of sequences and triggers for autoincrement fields.
New Entity Developer automatically generates a sequence and a trigger for autoincrement fields in Oracle when generating database script from the model or when synchronizing database with a model. Just set Auto Generated Value to true for integer property in LinqConnect model, or Store Generated Pattern to "Identity" for Entity Framework model and Entity Developer will generate sequence and trigger DDL automatically.
