Dear users,

Devart is glad to announce the release of the new version of dotConnect for Oracle, enhanced database connectivity solution, built over the ADO.NET architecture, that supports Entity Framework and LinqConnect ORM solutions. New dotConnect for Oracle offers you support for Visual Studio 2012 and Entity Framework 5.

Here is the complete list of dotConnect for Oracle 7.2.77 features:

  • Visual Studio 2012 is supported
  • The bug with getting 'ORA-01403' under recurrent execution of a select query is fixed
  • The bug with the ExecuteArray method when one of parameters is an empty NClob is fixed
  • The bug with setting a parameter value equal to empty PL/SQL Table in the Direct connection mode is fixed
  • The bug with Local Time Zone not applied for Timestamp With Local Time Zone columns in direct mode is fixed
  • The bug with using the OracleDbType.VarChar parameters in the Direct Mode is fixed
LinqConnect (formerly known as LINQ to Oracle)
  • The bug with getting entities from the cache by keys of type Int16 is fixed
  • The bug with getting entities directly from the cache for the command First (predicate) etc, is fixed
  • The bug with wrong parameters when loading dependent entities with two-level LoadOptions are set is fixed
Entity Developer
  • Support for ADO.NET Entity Framework 5 is added
  • The 'Entity Base' class property, which allows specifying the ancestor class/interface for a particular entity type, is implemented (LinqConnect models)
  • The behaviour is changed: when preserving schema name is disabled, schema name is no more saved for Oracle package functions/procedures (LinqConnect models)
  • The behaviour is changed: only particular (not all) property characteristics are regenerated when using Update Model From Database wizard after the metadata of the corresponding column have been changed (LinqConnect models)
  • The bug with quoting CURRENT_TIMESTAMP if it is specified in the defaultValue attribute of the property in the storage part of the model is fixed (Entity Framework models)
Entity Framework support
  • ADO.NET Entity Framework 5 is supported
  • The config.CodeFirstOptions.UseNonLobStrings option (default value is False) is added in order to treat string properties without an explicitly specified server data type as non-LOB
  • The behaviour is changed: Devart.Data.Oracle.Entity.Migrations.dll is built with the 4.4 version of EntityFramework.dll now
  • The bug with using command delimiters when generating the Code-First Migrations script in Package Manager Console of Visual Studio is fixed
  • The bug with using NULL values in Out/InOut parameters of stored procedures is fixed
  • The bug with using pipelined functions which are pushing out the RECORD objects is fixed
