ASP.Net Providers for MySQL

Are there ASP.NET 2.0 Providers available for MySQL? On Googling, I find discrete (and incomplete) pieces of code on codeplex and elsewhere.

Alternatively there is dotConnect from Devart, however, it is commercial. I am looking for something that is open source, free & production quality.

The one that I am looking for should cover at least following: - Membership - Role management - Profile - Session state


I did more Googling and came across MySQL Connector/NET. It provides support for the ASP.NET 2.0 provider model.

MySQL Connector/NET supplies the following providers:

  • Membership Provider
  • Role Provider
  • Profile Provider
  • Session State Provider (MySQL Connector/NET 6.1 and later)

I'll try it out and share my feedback subsequently.
