[Mono-dev] RV: Trying figure out EF6

Hi Daniel, that is not all the truth, I think. Entity Framework 6 has some
“little” breaking changes:





I´ve managed to do this changes. Unfortunately, there are some minor error
after that
 for instance, _migrationhistory table comes with a compound
primary key index, too long for MySql (see
http://entityframework.codeplex.com/discussions/403680 for details) and


I hope those things can be fixed soon, I´ll post back about it if someone is
interested in.

Entity Framework uses the standard ADO.NET providers, so most ADO.NET
providers should work with it. This includes the MySQL one, which comes with
Ubuntu and Debian in the "libmysql6.4-cli" package, or you can download it
from http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/net/. Just reference
MySQL.Data.dll and set up your App.config or Web.config correctly. Here is
an example config:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>




              <add name="MySQL Data Provider"
invariant="MySql.Data.MySqlClient" description=".Net Framework Data Provider
for MySQL" type="MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlClientFactory, MySql.Data" />




      <add name="BloggingContext" 

           connectionString="Server=localhost; Database=dotnettest;
Uid=root; Pwd=password"

           providerName="MySql.Data.MySqlClient" />





Obviously, change all the placeholder values (context name, server name,
database, username, password). You will need to use a very recent version of
Mono (3.0.1 or trunk) due to bug 7396
<https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=7936> .

Hi, I´m trying to use Entity Framework, I would like to use MySql. In my
understanding there is no EF6 provider yet, so this is not possible. In
fact, I only found two providers available for EF, SQL Server and SQL CE.


Is this right? Is there any other option out there?
