Are we going to have ADO.NET?


We have a really large code base and a number of products built on .NET technology. We’re very interested in the idea of being able to move our products to Linux and we’d like to do that based on a stack released by Microsoft.

So far I’ve not been able to find a single document or web page that could let us know if key functionality such as data access will be available under the open source .NET initiative from MS or what the roadmap is for this initiative.

Am I missing something here? Is there a starting point for an MS shop to help plan a prospective migration to open source .NET from Microsoft?

It also contains the list of APIs that are currently available on .NET Core, including things like select classes in System.Data.

DataTable/View/Set is not included, there’s a discussion in the corefx repository:


Exactly what I was looking for! Thanks a lot.
