I have a developer who wants to use Blazor to build his application. It needs to query Db2 for z/OS. He reported the following error when using the Entity Framework driver with Db2 for z/OS:
Method 'get_Info' in type 'IBM.EntityFrameworkCore.Infrastructure.Internal.Db2OptionsExtension' from assembly 'IBM.EntityFrameworkCore, Version=188.8.131.52, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=7c307b91aa13d208' does not have an implementation.
I opened case TS002960074 on Db2 Connect to get more information and have gotten confirmation that the Entity Framework driver for Db2 does not have support for .NET Core 3.0. The support person has asked me to open an RFE for .NET Core 3.0 support in the Entity Framework driver for Db2.
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||Developers who want to use Blazor and other features released as part of .NET Core 3.0 in their Db2 applications|
How should it work?
The developer should not get an error when he is trying to use the Entity Framework driver with .NET Core 3.0 when querying Db2 for z/OS.
His workaround is to use Razor pages instead of Blazor pages. He will convert his applications to Blazor pages when the support for .NET Core 3.0 is in the Entity Framework driver. This is because Blazor is released with .NET Core 3.0.
|Priority Justification||Lack of support is currently limiting time-saving software development choices|
