New features in the Entity Framework support!

Post by Devart » Fri 18 Oct 2013 06:16

Dear users,

We are glad to announce the new features that are available in the Entity Framework support in the latest version:
  • Generation of OUTER APPLY statement in Entity Framework is supported for Oracle 12c
  • VARCHAR2/NVARCHAR2/RAW types with length increased to 32KB are supported for Oracle 12c
  • Oracle 12c specific SQL generation for paging is supported
  • The behaviour is changed: Code-First/Code-First Migrations generate columns with the identity clause 'GENERATED AS IDENTITY' for entity key properties with 'Store Generated Pattern=Identity' (only for Oracle 12c)
  • The behaviour is changed: Code-First Migrations generates DEFAULT 0 for new NOT NULL columns of numeric types when adding them in the existing table (Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, DB2)
  • The behaviour is changed: Code-First Migrations generates DEFAULT EMPTY_CLOB() for new NOT NULL columns of CLOB/NCLOB types when adding them in the existing table (Oracle)
  • The behaviour is changed: Code-First Migrations generates DEFAULT '' for new NOT NULL columns of CHAR/NCHAR/VARCHAR2/NVARCHAR2 types when adding them in the existing table (Oracle)
  • The behaviour is changed: Code-First Migrations generates DEFAULT '' for new NOT NULL columns of string types when adding them in the existing table (MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, DB2)
  • The bug with performing queries via the ExecuteStoreQuery, SqlQuery methods in Entity Framework 6 is fixed (MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL)
  • The bug related to work in Entity Data Model Wizard with Oracle 9.2 is fixed (Oracle)
