Devart or MySQL Connector ?

Devart or MySQL Connector ?

Postby Sancha » Tue 16 Feb 2010 16:07

Hello every one !

I am developping an application wich has to connect to MySQL DataBase.
My application is coding in C#.

So, to connect to MySQL Database, I am hesitating between Devart and MySQL Connector (wich is free).

Can you tell me what Devart can bring me compared with MySQL Connector ? Is Devart faster ?

Thank you !
Sancha

Please see the comparison article in our documentation:
http://www.devart.com/dotconnect/mysql/docs/ComparingProviders.html

In two words, performance of dotConnect for MySQL and MySQL Connector is approximately equal in general case, but dotConnect for MySQL has a significantly wider feature set: more useful components, more design-time features, LINQ support.

In the article, the comparison is performed between dotConnect for MySQL 5.50.79 and MySQL Connector/NET 6.2.2. Also, the dotConnect for MySQL features listed are due for the Beta build 5.70.90. For more information on dotConnect for MySQL versions, please see our Revision history:
