  1. Add compatibility to run ASYNC Queries

    Just add the function, like EF 6 still got it to run queries against the database in an async way.
    Here is an example:

    • WCF Data Services (OData) Provider for LinqConnect

      Right now, DataServicesContext works with DevArt DataContext via reflection provider. That leads to incorrect NULL translation in IQueryable and as consequence - extreme complicated generated SQL.

      Implementing native ODATA provider for DevArt DataContext would fix the problem.

        • Create "Is unique" attribute for properties, that creates a unique constraint in database

          Currently table properties have an "Auto generated value" attribute that causes a sequence to be created in the database. An analogous attribute named "Unique value" that creates a unique constraint in the database would be very nice.

              • Oracle connectionstring DSN-less

                Since we can connect to Oracle without using a TNSNAMES.ORA by fully specifing de DSN entry I think the connection interface should manage this by itself.
                An example of a DSN-less connectionstring:

                Data Source=(DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS_LIST=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=MyHost)(PORT=MyPort)))(CONNECT_DATA=(SERVER=DEDICATED)(SERVICE_NAME=MyOracleSID)));User Id=myUsername;Password=myPassword;

                    • Support PostgreSQL array data types in LinqConnect

                      Supporting PostgreSQL array data types in LinqConnect will give it a great advantage over other ORMs. For any DBA that has worked with PostgreSQL will know of the benefits of using array types. It would be great to be able to integrate this within our entity sets also for an easy work flow with all the benefits of using arrays.

                            • Equivalent of Silverlight plus wcf RIA , but for WinRt / Metro

                              When using WinRT/Metro it would be great to have a product that would do what Wcf RIA Services did for Silverlight (especially the tight coupling between the Server project and the Client project.)
                              Perfection would include EF code first and MvvM.

                                right-click on class and choose "update from database". that way we do not have to go throught very slow process of updating all classes from database.

                                    • Support automatic transient fault handling in LinqConnect

                                      In Windows Azure you need to catch certain exceptions that indicate that there is a transient failure and you should try again shortly (with a exponential back-off) when your application is using SQL Azure. The following link provides a detailed description:

                                      http://windowsazurecat.com/2010/10/best-practices-for-handling-transient-conditions-in-sql-azure-client-applications/

                                      Entity Framework 6 is apparently going to be able to automatically handle this, so the developer won't need to wrap all their database calls with code that handles these transient conditions. As a developer working on a app that will be deployed on Azure, I would really appreciate this feature in LinqConnect.

                                      • Support private/protected implementation for Table<entity>

                                        right now, Table<TEntity> only support public method for single context, its very anoying if single context have much Table<entity> properties, if just 2-3 entity, its readable, but if I have 100 entity? so long for intellisense drop down, then all contain for single data context, it would be nice if it can private or protected method, so we can inherited that properties or method at inherited class

                                        or

                                        for Table<entity> must not on dataobject, but have method for add or remove entity on data context, it would be nice too, because we can refactor every single entity on different data…

                                        • Allow LINQ queries to in memory entities as linq to objects

                                          Like Entity Framework .Cache LINQ queries , allow making LINQ queries to LINQ to SQL entities already loaded into memory - either came from db or created in the client as if quering LINQ to Objects
