LinqConnect Express is a free fast and easy to use ORM solution, developed closely to the Microsoft LINQ to SQL technology, and supporting SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQLite. It provides a powerful model designer tool with complete integration to Visual Studio - Entity Developer. This free package does not allow customization of code templates and is limited to 10 entities in the project. Unlike LINQ to SQL, LinqConnect is an actively developed and enhanced ORM solution. New features are added based on user's feedback. LinqConnect includes the Express Edition of all supported dotConnect data providers, visual model designer - Entity Developer, and SQL monitoring tool dbMonitor. With Entity Developer all the model creating and editing tasks can be performed in convenient GUI, eliminating the need of the manual XML editing, thus greatly reducing the development time.
