EF Code First Migrations

Post by Remco Blok » Tue 06 Dec 2011 13:11

Hi,

I just tried out the EF Code First Migrations beta 1, specifically executing database provider specific sql. I posted about it here:
http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums ... e240c293c2
and I uploaded some sample code here:
http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/Recursiv ... l-bf43a96e
It would be great if DevArt's dotConnect provider for Oracle could also support EF Code First Migrations. There is a suggestion on uservoice already here: http://devart.uservoice.com/forums/1051 ... se-schema-. What are DevArt's plans to support EF Code First Migrations?

We are investigating the possibility of implementing this feature. We will post here about the results in the nearest future.

Migrations also support adding unique constraints

It looks like EF Code First Migrations also support adding unique constraints. This is the top requested feature on Devart's uservoice site: http://devart.uservoice.com/forums/1051 ... rk-support. With EF Code First Migrations scheduled for RTM in EF 4.3 in early 2012 likely coming before unique constraint support in EF, it would be good to see Devart consider EF Code First Migrations first.

I just got notified by the DevArt uservoice website that DevArt has started work on the Code First Database Evolution / Database (Schema) Migration idea. Could DevArt confirm that this is Oracle provider support for EF Code First Migrations, which Microsoft will release as Entity Framework 4.3?

Entity Framework Code First Migrations (EF 4.3 Beta 1) will be supported for Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQLite. We are planning to implement this functionality in 3-5 weeks.
