New features in the Entity Framework support!

Post by Devart » Thu 27 Mar 2014 14:01

Dear users,

We are glad to announce the new features that are available in the Entity Framework support in the latest version:
  • Entity Framework 6.1.0 RTM is supported (MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, SQLite, Salesforce, DB2)
  • Entity Framework 6.1.0 Tools for Visual Studio 2012 & 2013 is supported (MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, SQLite, Salesforce, DB2)
  • The use of the JSON data type in string canonical functions and comparison operators (equality and inequality) is supported (PostgreSQL)
  • The releasing of memory, which was allocated for commands and readers of ObjectContext / DbContext, is improved (MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, SQLite, Salesforce, DB2)
  • The behaviour is changed: now SQL is generated without additional sorting in a subquery when working with Oracle 11g/10g/9i and during the work with paging operations with .OrderBy().Skip().Take() (Oracle)
  • The bug with the comparison operators (equality and inequality), where one or both of its arguments are the result of an expression based on the CLOB/NCLOB columns, is fixed (Oracle)
  • The bug with generating Code-First Migrations for the properties with DatabaseGeneratedOption.None for Oracle12c in Entity Framework 6 is fixed (Oracle)
  • The bug with generating DDL for the Identity property, which is a part of composite entity key, in run-time (Code-First CreateDatabase(), Code-First Migrations) and design-time (EDM Designer) is fixed (Oracle)
  • The bug with determining correct datatypes of data retrieved by some EntitySQL queries is fixed (Oracle)
  • The bug related to the "UNION types json and character varying cannot be matched" error is fixed (PostgreSQL)
