SimpleMembership Provider Support in dotConnect ADO.NET Providers

February 28, 2013

Devart is glad to announce the release of the new versions of ADO.NET data providers, enhanced database connectivity solutions, built over the ADO.NET architecture, that support Entity Framework and LinqConnect ORM solutions. New versions of dotConnect data providers offer you support for ExtendedMembership (SimpleMembership) providers.

Now our users can benefit from using ExtendedMembership and OAuth technology in their web applicatons and store the membership data in Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, or SQLite database.

The ASP.NET MVC 4 Internet Application template adds some new handy security features built on top of SimpleMembership. SimpleMembership is the membership API, designed to improve and simplify the use of the built in security in ASP.NET. Our dotConnect ADO.NET providers implement classes for the new Role and ExtendedMembership providers, that offer the same functionality as the standard SimpleMembershipProvider and SimpleRoleProvider and store membership data in the corresponding database.

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.
