dotConnects 5.20 Beta Available for Oracle, MySQL, and SQLite!
March 03, 2009
dotConnects continue to move towards being the optimal ORM solutions available on the market. The new betas of dotConnect for Oracle, MySQL, and SQLite fill the last gaps in implementation of LINQ to SQL and Entity Framework support.
In LINQ to Oracle and LINQ to MySQL, dotConnects introduce full support for stored procedures, user-defined functions, database management, and SqlMethods class.
In Entity Framework support, Entity Developer 2 now fully replaces standard Microsoft tools with better solutions for model creation and management. Entity Developer is much faster and more flexible than Visual Studio wizards and designers for Entity Framework and LINQ to SQL models. This is especially important for dotConnect for SQLite, where Entity Framework design time was not available at all due to Visual Studio limitations.
You are welcome to enjoy the world of efficient application development with new dotConnects!
