Press release   •   May 30, 2012 16:57 EEST


Devart is glad to present the new version of LinqConnect 4.0 - an enhanced LINQ to SQL compatible ORM solution with extended functionality and support for SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQLite.

Devart's LinqConnect 4.0 introduces new editions for Silverlight and Windows Phone 7. Now it provides ADO.NET and LINQ Data Access for the applications. With the new editions users get an opportunity to connect directly to Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL. In addition, they offer an embedded SQLite-based database engine to store data in fully relational database in Isolated storage.

LinqConnect 4.0 demonstrates a new degree of performance, stability and enhanced funtionality. In the latest version of LinqConnect users can apply the improved SubmitChanges for the most complicated cases.

Devart Team made an effort to optimize the performance of LinqConnect and as a result cache was improved, Submit performance and materialization performance has risen and stored procedure mapping was enhanced.

Starting from the 4.0 version, LinqConnect uses only its own classes. It does not reference the System.Data.Linq assembly any more so this assembly is not loaded with applications, using LinqConnect. However that does not affect on the LINQ to SQL compatibility. Public interface of the classes is completely compatible with the public interface of Microsoft LINQ to SQL classes. Moreover, Devart Team has added the Upgrade Wizard for easy upgrading of LinqConnect projects to the new version of LinqConnect in a few clicks.
