Visual Studio 2010 Support in dotConnect Data Providers and Entity Developer!

April 15, 2010

Devart is glad to present new versions of ADO.NET data providers and Entity Developer for SQL Server with complete support for Visual Studio 2010.

Entity Developer 2.80 was greatly improved. Now Entity Developer seamlessly integrates with Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Studio 2010. Entity Developer LINQ to SQL and Entity Framework models are edited inside the Visual Studio without the need to open the model in a separate Entity Developer application. You can use Entity Developer for creating models for both Entity Framework 1 and Entity Framework 4. For example, such feature as Lazy Loading is now supported for Entity Framework 4 models.

dotConnect for Oracle, MySQL, and PostgreSQL now support both Entity Developer and Entity Data Model Wizard/Update Wizard for designing Entity Framework models in Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Studio 2010.

* dotConnect Universal does not support LINQ to SQL and Entity Framework.

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