LinqConnect 2.20 with Improved Support for Large Models Released!
January 27, 2011
Devart is glad to announce the release of
LinqConnect 2.20 - an enhanced LINQ to SQL compatible ORM solution with extended
functionality, support for SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQLite. New
version of LinqConnect offers you Entity Developer 3.20
with automatic generation of sequences and triggers for Autoincrement properties
in Oracle and improved support for large models.
Generating Sequences and Triggers
New Entity Developer automatically generates a sequence and a trigger for autoincrement
fields in Oracle when generating database script from the model or when synchronizing
database with a model. Just set Auto Generated Value to true for integer property
and Entity Developer will generate sequence and trigger DDL automatically.
In case of large models containing many entities, the diagram may
become too complex to understand and edit. To make your model better understandable,
new Entity Developer allows splitting the model into several thematic diagrams,
each one having a part of model entities. For example, all entities, related to
sales may be placed on one diagram, and production entities - to another diagram.
Managing diagrams is very easy. Model diagrams are displayed in
the Diagrams node of the conceptual model in the Model Explorer. Here you can add
a new diagram to your model, remove or rename existing model diagrams at any time.
If you generate a model from a database, you can split model into diagrams
by schemas or create only one default diagram with all or part of the
Model can have as many diagrams as you need, and each diagram may contain any model
entities. When creating a new diagram, you may immediately choose model entities
to display on it.
