Azure function license for dotConnect for BigCommerce?

Post by jgoemaat » Mon 17 Dec 2018 23:12

I'd like to use your "ADO.NET Provider for BigCommerce" from one of my Azure functions. I simply want to pull some customer and/or order data from BigCommerce every time I receive a new order web-hook call from them.

I see Azure Functions can reference external DLLs:

QUESTIONS:
1. I see Azure supports Core 2.1, while it looks like your software may require ".NET Framework 4.0, 4.5, 4.6, and 4.7"?

2. How would the license file be installed there? I see your documentation for "Web Site Projects" - would that be applicable?

3. Lastly, is it possible to test my Azure function on Azure before I have a license file? (during the demo period?)

Thanks!

1. .NET Frameworks 4.0, 4.5, 4.6, and 4.7 are the only frameworks supported by dotConnect for BigCommerce: https://www.devart.com/dotconnect/bigco ... ility.html.
.NET Core is not supported by this provider.

2. That is a correct approach.

3. Yes, it is. Please evaluate a trial version (free use during 30 days): https://www.devart.com/dotconnect/bigco ... nload.html.

1. It does look like V1 (legacy) of Azure Functions supports .NET 4.7 (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/ ... s-versions), so I may give that a try. I had hoped someone here in the forums would have tried this already.

2. Do you have any plans to support .NET Core in any future release? I could see you selling licensing for your dotConnect products to a lot of Azure Function developers as it gains steam ...

Thanks again!

We will investigate the possibility to support .NET Standard 2.0 (.NET Core 2.0) in dotConnect for BigCommerce and notify you about the result.

The bug with using ASP.NET Core Web Application (.NET Framework) and Azure Functions v1 (.NET Framework) projects in Visual Studio 2017 is fixed in v1.7.822 of dotConnect for BigCommerce. Please upgrade.
