It provides a powerful model designer tool with complete integration to Visual Studio - Entity Developer.
This free package does not allow customization of code templates and is limited to 10 entities in the project.
Actively developed technology
Unlike LINQ to SQL, LinqConnect is an actively developed ORM solution. We keep on improving our product and adding new features based on user feedback.
Complete toolkit provided
LinqConnect includes the Express Edition of all supported dotConnect data providers, visual model designer - Entity Developer, and SQL monitoring tool - dbMonitor.
Visual model designer
With Entity Developer all the model creating and editing tasks can be performed in convenient GUI, completely eliminating the need of the manual XML editing, thus greatly reducing the development and learning time.
LinqConnect uses classes and interfaces completely compatible with LINQ to SQL, while extending its functionality, so LINQ to SQL developer can easily get started to work with LinqConnect.
The new LinqConnect 3.1 Express differs from its predecessors by having a significantly improved Entity Developer performance. The updated version also provides the function of documentation generation for Enum members. And the available Fluent mapping makes you work more efficient and quick.
