EnityDAC includes Entity Developer – a powerful Visual ORM Model Designer with Code generation, which allows to create and edit ORM models visually without typing a line of XML code or manual describing class attributes in Delphi code.
Users can develop applications with EnityDAC using any of the approaches: Database-First, Model-First, or Code-First.
Support for Language Integrated Queries (LINQ) allows to unify the application code and make applications independent of the specifics and syntax of an SQL database for which it is developed, that will allow to support multiple databases in the application with no effort.
To increase application performance, EntityDAC allows to cache metadata, all entities loaded from the database, LINQ queries and much more. Such caching allows to avoid multiple loading of the same data and vastly improve performance in comparison to using the standard Data Access Components.
For database access, EntityDAC uses any Devart Data Access Components: UniDAC, ODAC, SDAC, MyDAC, IBDAC, PgDAC, LiteDAC.
EntityDAC can use all the standard Delphi data providers: ADO, BDE, IBX, dbExpress and FireDAC.
