New Versions of ADO.NET Data Providers Are Released!

December 20, 2007

Core Lab Software Development has announced the release of the next versions of OraDirect .NET, MyDirect .NET, PostgreSQLDirect .NET, and SQLDirect .NET. In this version you get support for Visual Studio 2008 and Entity Framework Beta 3. ADO.NET Entity Framework optimizes the development process with object-relational mapping, SQL-based entity query language, and LINQ.

The products (except SQLDirect .NET) fully support the Entity Framework capabilities, which allows you to base your object-oriented applications on the database of your choice. The new versions include a wizard that helps you setup model relations, and a set of demos to use as a starting point. All standard Entity Framework samples can be easily ported to OraDirect .NET, MyDirect .NET, and PostgreSQLDirect .NET.

As a step towards better usability, we have added a dialog and a wizard that greatly simplify your work with licensing in the products. From now on you are able to verify and embed licensing information in your projects in a few clicks.

If you wish to provide feedback on the new versions, you can do it in our forums or by e-mail. There is also feedback form in the support zone of every product. We are always glad to hear your comments and take into account your development needs.
