Devart sim-ships its database tools, data connectivity solutions and developer tools with Visual Studio 2017.

Devart congratulates all Microsoft Visual Studio users with the 20th anniversary of Visual Studio and announces support for Visual Studio 2017 in its ADO.NET providers, ORM products, and other developer tools.

The software solutions from Devart help users develop better .NET applications more efficiently, and now users can combine all the development efficiency features provided by the Devart products with benefits, provided by the new Visual Studio version.

The dotConnect product line is a database connectivity solution built over ADO.NET architecture for working with cloud and database data from .NET applications. It includes providers for the major databases with support for Entity Framework, LinqConnect, and NHibernate ORM, and providers with Entity Framework support for a number of widely used cloud applications – popular CRMs, accounting, marketing, and e-commerce apps. They enable users to build high-performance data-related applications quickly, working with database and cloud data – now also in the latest Visual Studio version.

It tightly integrates into Visual Studio and provides a number of advanced features for visual ORM model development for Visual Studio users.
