Advantage with Visual Studio 2010

VS2010_Title This week's Advantage version 10 demonstration discusses support for Visual Studio 2010. Visual Studio 2010 includes many new data features such as; lazy loading, POCO, model first as well as LINQ. Advantage 10 supports all of these features along with integration with other Visual Studio tools.

In this short ( ~8 minute ) screencast you will see how you can use the Advantage .NET Data Provider to generate database objects based on an Entity Model and generating an Entity Model from an existing dictionary. We will also demonstrate using LINQ to Entities to retrieve data from an Advantage Data Dictionary.

You can view the demonstration by clicking on the image or you can download a WMV version here. You can find all the Version 10 demonstrations on the DevZone under screencasts.
