Devart announces the first release of EntityDAC Beta – a new ORM for Delphi with LINQ support. EntityDAC provides a powerful framework that allows to perform object-relational mapping of database objects to Delphi classes with full support for encapsulation, inheritance, polymorphism and other OOP features. To retrieve data from a database, LINQ is used as a database independent query engine.
EnityDAC includes Entity Developer – a powerful Visual ORM Model Designer with Code generation, which allows to create and edit ORM models visually without typing a line of XML code or manual describing class attributes in Delphi code.
Users can develop applications with EnityDAC using any of the approaches: Database-First, Model-First, or Code-First.
