Devart releases new versions of dotConnect ADO.NET Providers!
November 20, 2009
Devart is glad to announce the release of the new versions of ADO.NET data providers,
enhanced database connectivity solutions built over ADO.NET architecture that offer
Entity Framework and LINQ to SQL support.
Entity Developer 2.50 was greatly improved. Now
Entity Developer allows to view and edit data of tables, views, and model entities,
create and execute Entity SQL, LINQ to Entities, and LINQ to SQL queries against
the model, eliminating the need for additional applications and reducing time for
accessing these operations. See
our blog article about working with data for more information.
Code generation for models was completely redesigned. New T4 like template language
allows you to use the full power of C# or Visual Basic in the templates, allowing
virtually anything you may want for code generation. Template editor now provides
syntax highlighting, code completion, and parameter information features. Syntax
highlighting allows you to easily distinguish text and code blocks. See
our blog article about code generation for more information.
The model got two new properties, affecting code generation: File Per Class and
View Generation. File Per Class property allows placing each model class to a separate
file, and View Generation adds code for pre-generating views for Entity Framework
In LINQ to SQL, dotConnects provide better performance and new DbLinqDataSource
To ease the database application development, integration with improved
dbMonitor was added, allowing you to monitor interaction with database remotely.
