In this episode of the .NET Data Community Standup, the .NET Data Access team dive into new support for collections of primitive values, just released in EF Core 8 Preview 4. Collections of a primitive type can now be used as properties of an entity type and will be mapped to a JSON column in the relational database. In addition, parameters of primitive values can be passed to the database. In either case, the native JSON processing capabilities of the database are then used to exact and manipulate the primitive values, just as if they were in a table. This opens up powerful query possibilities, as well as optimizations to common problems such as translating queries that use Contains.
