December 24, 2015
Devart is glad to announce support for more cloud applications in the dotConnect product line. Beta versions of the following ADO.NET providers are released:
New dotConnect data providers offer standard ADO.NET or Entity Framework data access to cloud data and allow you to quickly create all kinds of .NET applications, working with cloud data.
Benefits of dotConnect Providers for Cloud Sources:
Easy Cloud Data Access from .NET
dotConnect providers for cloud sources offer powerful design-time and allow you to quickly design data access layer for your .NET applications. Standard and clear ADO.NET and Entity Framework interfaces eliminate the need to study cloud application API and allow easy integration with Microsoft's data access technologies. Our providers allow you to work with cloud data with less efforts and less code writing.
Documentation with a set of tutorials allows you to get started with our providers quickly and start working with cloud data in almost no time.
dotConnect providers allow you to access cloud data via Entity Framework - Microsoft's recommended data access technology. They support Entity Framework v4, v5, and v6.
Our providers go with a bundled visual designer for ORM models with Visual Studio integration - Entity Developer. Standard Visual Studio Entity Data Model designer is also supported.
Powerful SQL Engine
dotConnect providers for cloud data include powerful SQL engine, which allows you to execute SQL statements against the cloud data. They allow you to retrieve cloud data with SELECT statements and manage them with INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE statements. You may use complex JOINs, WHERE conditions, etc. - all the SQL benefits, not available with cloud APIs.
If you wish to provide feedback on the new providers, 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.
