New Release of Entity Developer with Firebird RDBMS Support and Other Improvements!
October 4, 2012
Devart is glad to announce the release of Entity Developer 4.7 with support for Firebird RDMS and several other features.
New version of Entity Developer provides compatibility of the NHibernate model with Firebird RDBMS 2.0 or later.
In this release we are also introducing integration with Visual Studio refactoring that enables renaming of model objects. Thus, when renaming, for example, an entity, refactoring will ensure that any references to that class are renamed across your solution. Refactoring is applicable to namespaces, classes and complex types as well as their properties, enums and their members; for LinqConnect and Entity Framework models it also applies to the context class and its properties.
Besides, from now on Entity Developer extends the list of available templates with Repository and Unit of Work Template, that allows you to generate Repositories and Unit of Work classes for your model.
Moreover, we have implemented the NHibernate subselect feature, that enables creating entities mapped to SQL queries. This functionality is similar to views, except that the view is created on the database side, and some DBMSs do not support this functionality, while the subselect query is created on the model side.
You are welcome to download and evaluate the new version.
If you wish to provide feedback on the new version, you can do it in our forums or with contact form. There is also a feedback form, and we are always glad to hear your comments and take into account your development needs.
