dotConnect Express on Open Source Project

Post by binod » Tue 11 Feb 2014 21:41


I downloaded dotConnect Express and tried it on an open source project replacing Npgsql. It worked like charm. Since we are open source, a few question arises here:

1. What are the points that one has to first consider before considering dotConnect Express in an open source project?

2. Do you recommend open source projects to use dotConnect (instead of Npgsql)?

3. If you do, could the dotConnect Express libraries (.dll files) be placed on a directory on Git/Mercurial repository centrally for development purpose?

4. Do you prefer specific open source source licenses?

Do we have knowledge of any other major OSS project that is using dotconnect as its primary data driver ?

Express Edition of dotConnect for PostgreSQL may be used in open source projects in the way that is not contrary to the 2.2, 2.3, 2.5, 2.6 points of our EULA (a copy of License Agreement is available in the folder of provider installation: \Program Files (x86)\Devart\dotConnect\PostgreSQL\License.rtf).
