Difference between universal and the others

Difference between universal and the others

Postby ekekakos » Sat 31 Jul 2010 17:26

I would like to tell me if there is any difference between dotConnect Universal and the other dotConnects eg PostgreSQL.
I am using this in VS2008 and sometimes I need also the Oracle one.
Can you tell me if it worths to upgrade existing one (dotConnect PostgreSQL) or buy the dotConnect Universal.

Thanks in advance

dotConnect Universal provides general connectivity functionality for different DBMSs. The data providers for specific DBMSs has wider functionality, including database-specific features and the ORM (Entity Framework and LinqConnect) support.

Provided that you need the general ADO.NET components only, dotConnect Universal will suit you better. For advanced features, you will need both dotConnect for PostgreSQL and dotConnect for Oracle. For details about these providers functionality, please refer to

For example, does the universal work with Inheritance in PostgreSQL?

Thanks in advance,

By inheritance in PostgreSQL, do you mean the table inheritance? Since the table inheritance is handled on the server side, it should be possible to use it with both dotConnect for PostgreSQL and dotConnect Universal.

Feel free to contact us if you encounter any problems with this.
