Devart Releases a New ORM for Delphi - EntityDAC


Devart announced the release of the new ORM for Delphi EntityDAC. It provides a powerful framework that allows to perform object-relational mapping of database objects to Delphi classes. It supports encapsulation, inheritance, polymorphism and other OOP features.


Visual ORM Model Designer with code generation - Entity Developer - is included in EntityDAC. It enables to create and edit ORM models visually, without typing a line of XML code or manual describing class attributes in Delphi code.


Users are able to use an existing database and generate all the required entity classes automatically, so there are no limitations to start developing an application based on the new ORM framework. Otherwise, Entity Developer can be used to create a new database model and automatically generate both - database and entity classes. EntityDAC allows to use any of the known approaches in application development: Database-First, Model-First, or Code-First.


In addition, support for Language Integrated Queries (LINQ) enables to unify the application code and make applications independent from the specifics and syntax of a target SQL database. This will allow to support multiple databases in application with no effort.


For database access EntityDAC uses any Devart Data Access Components:

* UniDAC

* ODAC

* SDAC

* MyDAC

* IBDAC

* PgDAC

* LiteDAC


Also EntityDAC can use all standard Delphi data providers:

* ADO

* IBX

* dbExpress

* FireDAC


Pricing and Availability


EntityDAC is available in Express Edition, Standard Edition, Professional Edition and Professional Edition with source code.


EntityDAC has a free 60-day trial period. Trial version with a full functionality of Professional Edition is available at the download page. Express Edition is a completely free and has a limited functionality and no expiration time.


In August Devart gives a 20% discount for any product license, so now EntityDAC prices start from 119.95$. To learn more about pricing visit the ordering page.
