)-- dotConnect for Oracle 7.3, ADO.NET Provider from Devart, includes support for Oracle Spatial in the projects, using Entity Framework.
Devart Team constantly implements all the available Entity Framework innovations, and shortly after the introduction of DbGeometry and DbGeography classes in Entity Framework 5 has implemented support for Oracle Spatial in the Entity Framework provider for Oracle. Oracle MDSYS.SDO_GEOMETRY object type can now be mapped to DbGeometry and DbGeography classes.
Now dotConnect for Oracle includes new versions of Devart.Data.Oracle.Entity.dll and Devart.Data.Oracle.Entity.Migrations.dll assemblies built for .NET Framework 4.5 (Entity Framework v5) and the new Devart.Data.Oracle.Entity.SharpMap.dll assembly for SharpMap GIS library support.
To read more about the demo and download its sources go to Devart blog.
dotConnect for Oracle also provides a number of spatial-specific options for the Entity Framework provider that allow you to customize dotConnect for Oracle behaviour when working with Oracle Spatial.
