Dear users,

Devart is glad to announce the release of the new version of dotConnect for Oracle, enhanced database connectivity solution built over ADO.NET architecture that offer Entity Framework and LINQ to SQL support. New dotConnect for Oracle offers complete support for Visual Studio 2010 Release Candidate and Entity Framework 4 Release Candidate.

Entity Developer 2.80 was greatly improved. Now Entity Developer seamlessly integrates with Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Studio 2010 Release Candidate. Entity Developer LINQ to SQL and Entity Framework models are edited inside the Visual Studio without the need to open the model in a separate Entity Developer application. You can use Entity Developer for creating models for both Entity Framework 1 and Entity Framework 4 Release Candidate. For example, such feature as Lazy Loading is now supported for Entity Framework 4 Release Candidate models.

dotConnect for Oracle now supports both Entity Developer and Entity Data Model Wizard/Update Wizard for designing Entity Framework models in Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Studio 2010 Release Candidate.

Model First was supported with templates for generating DDL script. Now you may design the Entity Framework model for your application and then create database automatically.

Support for new Canonical aggregate and scalar functions was added to dotConnect for Oracle, and you may use standard database functions in LINQ queries.
