SoftFluent announced today that CodeFluent Entities and its Microsoft Visual Studio integrated graphical editor supports Microsoft Corp.’s SQL Server 2014. SQL Server 2014 enables customers to gain faster insights from their data through improved performance, increased availability and disaster recovery, and simplified development of hybrid scenarios to Microsoft Azure.
CodeFluent Entities allows developers to generate components such as scripts (e.g., T-SQL, PL/SQL, My SQL, PgSQL), code (e.g., C#, VB), web services (e.g. WCF, JSON/REST) and UIs (e.g., Windows 8, ASP.NET, SharePoint, WPF, Silverlight). The code generation process is ‘model-first’ and continuous: from your declarative model, a meta-model will be inferred which code generators will then translate into code. Over 20 code generators (a.k.a. ‘producers’) are provided ‘out of the box’ and that can be combined to obtain your own application following your desired architecture, using your desired technologies.
Since your application development is driven from this model, your business logic is decoupled from the technology and allows you to absorb changes faster and smoother: apply changes in your model to update all your layers consistently or add/switch technology by changing your used code generators. CodeFluent Entities is designed for Microsoft .NET and empowers users to streamline developments on major Microsoft platforms and technologies, such as Microsoft SQL Server 2005 to 2014, C#, VB.NET, WCF, ASP.NET, WPF, Windows 8, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Azure SQL Database, third-party databases and more.
“Aligning to SQL Server 2014 with enhanced in-memory support and Azure-hosted backup, we are confirming our commitment to the Microsoft developer community to help them keep up with the quick innovation pace,” said Daniel Cohen-Zardi, SoftFluent Chief Executive Officer. “CodeFluent Entities helps you generate .NET applications with a consistent approach that encompasses multiple database technologies in the cloud and on-premises.”
“SQL Server 2014 offers a powerful set of capabilities for mission-critical workloads, business intelligence and hybrid cloud,” said Eron Kelly, general manager, SQL Server product marketing, Microsoft. “Microsoft’s integration with CodeFluent Entities helps SoftFluent customers build and deploy on SQL Server 2014 to create new business value and unlock new opportunities with their data.”
