LinqConnect at UserVoice

The following features are on our roadmap:

  Batch Updates

Performing INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE operations in batches will increase performance of data updating.

  Shorter SQL

Possibility to generate shorter SQL statements – without line breaks, indents, and formatting. Query formatting is useful only when monitoring SQL statements, and it increases SQL size.

  EDM Wizard for Oracle – NUMBER mapping customization with NumberMappings

Make EDM Wizard process NUMBER columns according to NumberMappings in the connection string.

  Correct Generation of SQL for SELECT Statement with NULL Parameter

Implement a workaround for Entity Framework bug
( http://stackoverflow.com/questions/682429/how-can-i-query-for-null-values-in-entity-framework )
so that users don’t need to write a more complex LINQ to Entities query to avoid this bug.

  Don’t Insert NULL Values on INSERT

Make NULL insertion generation in INSERT statements optional.

  Oracle 8 Support

Add support for Oracle 8.

  Filter Available Objects in EDM Wizard for Oracle

Let user filter objects, available in the EDM Wizard, by owner/grants/privileges/etc.

  Short Names for Aliases of Tables and Subqueries
