EntityDAC release

EntityDAC - new ORM for Delphi is released!

August 11, 2014

Devart team is proud to introduce EntityDAC - the new ORM for Delphi with LINQ support!

EntityDAC provides a powerful framework that allows to perform object-relational mapping of database objects to Delphi classes. It fully supports encapsulation, inheritance, polymorphism and other OOP features.

Powerful Visual ORM Model Designer with code generation - Entity Developer - is included in EntityDAC. It allows you to create and edit ORM models visually, without typing a line of XML code or manual describing class attributes in Delphi code!

There are no limitations to start developing a new application based on the newest ORM framework. You can use an existing database and generate all the required entity classes automatically. Otherwise, you can use Entity Developer to create a new database model and automatically generate both - database and entity classes. EntityDAC allows to use any of the known approaches when developing your application: Database-First, Model-First, or Code- First.

In addition, support for Language Integrated Queries (LINQ) allows to unify the application code and make applications independent from the specifics and syntax of a target SQL database. This will allow to support multiple databases in your application with no effort!

For database access EntityDAC uses any Devart Data Access Components:

Also EntityDAC can use all standard Delphi data providers:

  • ADO
  • IBX
  • dbExpress
  • FireDAC

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