Specifies the type semantics that are used to resolve the function overloads. Each store provider must use these enumeration flags in the provider manifest file for every function definition.
Assembly: System.Data.Entity (in System.Data.Entity.dll)
The class specifies type semantics for promotability, implicit conversion, and explicit conversion for the provider primitive types. ADO.NET reads this information from the storage provider manifest file into the class. Then, ADO.NET uses the class to determine the appropriate function definitions based on the parameter types.
