    Hello,

     Now that Telerik is a Progress company, will there be tools that allow us developers to make a direct connection to the database/query/procedures etc?

     

    I am a ASP.NET/C# developer, who just recently joined a company that uses Progress DB. My experience is mostly with SQL DBs, and I am wondering if Telerik will come out with tools that simplify the connection/querying of the Progress DB?

     

    I know one way to do it is through ODBC connection, but what I want to know is there is or will be something similar to the way I connect to MSSQL database.

     

    For example in MSSQL I would connect and query like this:

    using (SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection("ConnectionString"))
    {
        SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("select * from customers", con);
        con.Open();
        SqlDataReader reader = cmd.ExecuteReader();
        con.Close();
    }
     
    etc...

     

    Will there be something similar to this in Telerik?

     

    Thanks

    Hi Erick,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Currently, our roadmap does not include development in this direction, although the support for the Progress DB is already raised as a topic. You can find the relevant feature request here, on our Ideas and Feedback portal. Your vote about it, as well the details about your use-case scenario will be appreciated.

    I hope you find this feasible.
