Spatial Support for EFCore 2.2

Post by rhuijben » Thu 13 Sep 2018 11:46

Microsoft announced that they are going to support spatial support in EFCore in their database implementations. See
https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/dotnet ... preview-2/

I'm very interested to hear when we can expect for some form of spatial support to appear in the Devart oracle EFCore support. I would love to have some initial support for a proof of concept application I'm working on, even if the real support is not ready yet. (Some workaround which allows access to the OracleObject via the value converter, or something would work for me as well).

Thank you for your suggestion. We will investigate the possibility to add Spatial support for EF Core 2.2 and post here when we get any results.

Unfortunately, there is no workaround.

* Support for spatial data types in EF Core 3 is implemented

* The new NuGet package Devart.Data.Oracle.EFCore.NetTopolosySuite with a .NET Standard 2.1 assembly, that is compatible with .NET Core 3, is added
* The new \Entity\EFCore3\Devart.Data.Oracle.Entity.EFCore.NetTopolosySuite.dll assembly compiled with EF Core 3.1 and .NET Framework 4.6.1 is added
