The FairCom DB SQL ADO.NET Data Provider has support for Entity Framework through V7.
The minimum development system requirements for FairCom DB SQL ADO.NET Entity Framework support are listed below. Note that they require the complete version (e.g., the complete version, not just the "client" version):
Auto Incrementing Field Type Restriction
Entity Framework Models allow Int16, Int32 or Int64 field types to be specified as Auto Incrementing in model design. Auto Incrementing fields are also known as Identity fields in some schemas.
FairCom DB SQL allows one user Auto Incrementing field type. Note that FairCom DB already supported a serial segment field, currently used by default as the ROWID value. As there is a limitation of one SRLSEG field type per data file (table), this precluded the addition of a user-defined field. An IDENTITY attribute is now available for this purpose.
Other Known Limitations
The following are other known FairCom DB SQL limitations that can be encountered when using Entity Framework support. These are in various stages of development. Contact your nearest FairCom office for the latest information concerning specific support for these items.
