Devart announced the release of LinqConnect 2.20 - an enhanced LINQ to SQL compatible ORM solution with extended functionality, support for SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQLite.

New version of LinqConnect contains the advanced modelling and code generation tool - Entity Developer 3.20 with significant technical advancements. New updated model designer comes with automatic generation of sequences and triggers for Autoincrement properties in Oracle and improved support for large models in all supported databases.


Large Models are Easy-to-Handle
With new version of LinqConnect Devart continues to provide the most convenient working with entity models.
In case of large models containing many entities, the diagram may become too complex to understand and edit. To make 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 purchases may be placed on one diagram, and cost 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.


Automatic Generating Sequences and Triggers in Oracle
Close collaboration with database developers resulted in advanced features that allow easier and more perspicuous generating and updating Oracle database from model.
New Entity Developer automatically generates a sequences and a triggers 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 and Entity Developer will generate sequence and trigger DDL automatically.
