We currently are converting our applications to .NET Core.
Microsoft provided a .NET Standard 2.1 compatible version of EF starting with EF 6.3 and continuing with EF 6.4.
The issue however is we are having issues getting your latest EF 6 driver (6.1.1 available from passport advantage site only).
It seems that your 6.1.1 driver is not .NET Standard 2.1 compatible.
We really need your EF 6.1.1 nuget package to be updated for .NET Standard 2.1 so that we can use it in .NET Core applications.
Perhaps there is a way to get it working now?
I have included a sample .NET Core application I am attempting to get working but get this message:
'The store type 'integer' could not be found in the SqlServer provider manifest'
Attached is the sample application I am attempting to get working.
See Case # TS003120433 for more details.
Why is it useful?
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||Every .NET developer|
How should it work?
Your EF 6 driver should provide a .NET Standard 2.1 compatible EF Driver for use in .NET Core applications.
Microsoft has provided a roadmap to upgrade legacy applications (for which there are many) that are using EF 6 by giving them the exact same version of EF that was used in full framework applications but give them the ability to port it to .NET Core with minimal effort.
We just need IBM to provide a compatible EF 6 driver that supports EF 6.4+ and is .NET Standard 2.1 compliant.
|Priority Justification||.NET Full framework is nearing end of life. We need to start converting our applications to a supported .NET COre|
