Difference between using Universal and PostgreSQL versions

Post by JORGEMAL » Fri 20 Dec 2013 15:15

I have been using dotConnect for PostgreSQL for some years and now I face the situation (with another client) in which I need to work with MySQL besides PostgreSQL. I am thinking about getting the dotConnect Universal for this case instead of buying 2 different products. Is using dotConnect Universal the same (or very similar) as dotConnect for PostgreSQL? I would not like to take very long to learn something new because I have to start as soon as possible with a project.

Respectfully,
Jorge Maldonado

The Professional Edition of dotConnect Universal includes run time of the Standard Edition of dotConnect for MySQL and dotConnect for PostgreSQL providers.

The advantage of dotConnect Universal is the UniSQL feature: http://www.devart.com/dotconnect/univer ... niSQL.html.

If you want to use advanced features of a particular database server, it is better to install the Professional edition of the corresponding dotConnect provider:
