Linq, SQL Server and Access: a happy family

Posted by – October 3, 2007

Linq seems to be a really cool MS solution, but doesn’t works with relational databases other than SQL Server or Access, the reason is simple, unfurtanelly MySQL, Oracle and Postgres doesn’t have Linq providers, this is really sad.

After some google search I found a project called DB Linq that contains Linq providers for Oracle, Postgres and MySQL, nothing perfect like MS Linq providers for SQL Server or Access, but can solve the problem for a short period of time.

You can find the binaries here:

If these providers doesn’t works as expected I strongly suggest NHibernate as Object-Relational solution. You can find NHibernate at:

Well, lemme try another solution for this later.

In my example my page code is something like we have below:
