Linqer is a SQL to LINQ conversion tool. It helps learning LINQ and convert existing SQL statements.
Not every SQL statement can be converted to LINQ, but Linqer covers many different types of SQL expressions. Linqer supports both .NET languages – C# and Visual Basic.
Because LINQ is a part of the C# and VB languages, it is sensitive to data type conversion. Linqer performs required type castings in the produced LINQ statements.
It can convert the most usable SQL Server functions. The full list of supported MSSQL functions can be found here.
You need to have Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 ,Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 , or Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 installed on your computer to be able to use Linqer. Visual Studio needs to be installed, in order to use the SqlMetal tool to generate LINQ to SQL model files or the EdmGen tool to generate LINQ to Entities model files.
- Generate LINQ to SQL or LINQ to Entities modeling files such as .dbml or .edmx.
- Create a Linqer Connection, which consists of a database connection string, model type(LINQ to SQL or LINQ to Entities), programming language (C# or VB), and generated or existing modeling files.
- The Linqer Connection Pool allows the management of stored connections.
- The multiple tabs interface is designed to work with multiple Linqer connections at the same time.
