LinqConnect Now Supports Metro Application Development
This July Devart presents the new edition of LinqConnect – LinqConnect for Metro. Developers often face the situation when they have to create web services and data through them, because metro applications can not connect to databases directly. And many find it really inconvenient. New LinqConnect releases developers of the excess work. It offers an embedded database engine, based on SQLite, that allows Metro Style applications to store data in a fully relational database. Now XAML Metro applications can be developed with true ORM data access.
Moreover, LinqConnect allows using ADO.NET interface for working with data, which was not available for Metro before.
Storing data in a relational database provides developers a number of advantages - such as transactions, constraints, indexes, and generally provides higher performance and lesser file size. The use of relational transactional database also increases reliability of local data storage. Small and efficient, and at the same time powerful SQLite database engine together with ADO.NET and LINQ interfaces for data access make LinqConnect a perfect choice to store data locally in Metro applications.
Devart Team puts maximum efforts to facilitate developers work with our tools. See*LinqConnect for Metro: Quick Start Guide, tutorial that shows how to use LinqConnect for working with data and to bind data to user interface elements, for more information.
