New Versions of dotConnect ADO.NET

Devart has released new versions of dotConnect for Oracle, dotConnect for MySQL, and dotConnect for PostgreSQL, with additional features including support for Entity Framework Spatials and SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services.

The latest version of dotConnect for Oracle got the improved Entity Framework Spatials support, and data providers for dotConnect for MySQL and dotConnect for PostgreSQL now contain spatial support as well.

NOTE: dotConnect for Oracle (formerly known as OraDirect .NET) is an enhanced ORM-enabled data provider for Oracle that builds on ADO.NET technology for developing Oracle-based database applications. It embodies an approach for designing application architecture and is said to boost productivity and facilitate the development of database applications.

Devart's providers now support NetTopologySuite spatial service, to extend the range of supported functions of DbGeometry/DbGeography classes. NetTopologySuite types are used by the new version of geospatial mapping library SharpMap v1 RC3.

dotConnect providers now support a number of database-specific functions in Entity SQL and LINQ to Entities and provide better performance when reading EWKT representation of spatial data.

"Updated versions of dotConnect for Oracle, MySQL, and PostgreSQL can now be used in Reporting Services projects for the latest version of SQL Server. All the users of the above mentioned data providers can benefit from Power View in Microsoft Excel 2013 and Power View in Microsoft SharePoint 2013, SharePoint 2013, and SharePoint 2010 integration, data alerts, and other new SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services features," said the company.
