Entity Framework 7 RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi,

    I am posting to get some clarification of some recent information about the new EF 7.

    In the MSDN blog it is stated that:

    "Entity Framework is a popular data access choice for traditional client and server applications that target the full .NET Framework. This includes applications built with technologies such as WPF, WinForms and ASP.NET. As we look to the future, we believe there is value in providing the same programming model for data access on the remaining platforms where .NET development is common. This includes Windows Store, Windows Phone and the Cloud Optimized .NET that was announced at TechEd. EF7 will work on all of these platforms as well as Mono, on both Mac and Linux."

    Does this mean that EF7 will work with a console application/WinForms application running on Mono & Linux, or does it mean EF7 is only going to be supported on Mono & Linux in conjunction with ASP.NET?

  • Hi Lioyd,

    I think it’s impossible. Microsoft will not allow this. But we can hope Mono release a new Runtime to support Entity Framework working on Linux.
