Support for EF 6.0 and IBM Data Servers (DB2, Informix) on nuget

20 Oct

The IBM driver team has been hard at work on separating out our .NET Entity Framework Provider so that we can move to the new nuget release path as recommended by the Entity Framework team.

I am very pleased to report that this work is complete and there is now a beta of the IBM Data Server Entity Framework Provider, supporting EF 6.0, on nuget.  Support will be via the developerWorks forum here https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/forums/html/topic?id=301875f8-5111-47a6-90e4-1165b36253ad , please make note of the prereqs for the beta.

This is an important milestone – this vehicle will allow independent updates to the Entity Framework support, as long as corresponding .NET provider updates are not required.
