.NET Core Support in DataStax C# Drivers
date: December 21, 2016
Starting from version 1.1 of the DataStax Enterprise C# Driver and 3.1 of the DataStax C# Driver for Apache Cassandra, we added support for .NET Core while maintaining support for .NET Framework 4.5 and above.
.NET Core is a new platform that includes a new runtime, libraries and tools. We are supporting .NET Core applications via .NET Platform Standard 1.5, a specific versioned set of reference assemblies that all .NET Platforms must support as defined in the Core Foundation Libraries (CoreFx).
We updated our CI builds (AppVeyor, Travis CI and Jenkins) to cover both runtimes on Windows and Linux. Integration tests run against different Apache Cassandra versions from 2.0 to 3.10 and DataStax Enterprise versions 4.8, 5.0 and 5.1, on both Windows and Linux.
