Any news on when you'll have a release to support VS2010 Beta 2?
(I've seen some posts mentioning end of December/beginning of January)

Andrey,

I am currently using VS 2010 Beta 2 Pro with some of my fellow development staff members and we are new to this. So far we haven't been able to generate an .edmx model using Microsoft's ADO.NET Entity Model wizard when we are simply trying to add two or more tables to the model. It appears to work okay when just using one table so far.

When you say there will be support for VS 2010 Beta 2 "in the end of January", are you talking about fixing issues with EF4 where you try to connect two tables (or more)? Right now, it is broken. We don't know if it is a lack of support for ADO.NET providers other than SQL Server or not. We are using the latest dotConnect for Oracle and are newly licensed customers.

I hope we can get some guidance on what to look for. I have also tried this using the Chinook database (on Codeplex) that is featured in Tim Heuer's great demo video of Silverlight 4 with WCF RIA Services. It works fine with one Oracle table, but not two or more... What's up with that?

Thanks,
HAL_2010 (aka, Steve)

HAL_2010, I have replied to your e-mails.
The support will include some bug fixes and support for EF v4 in Entity Developer.

I will be working on a project that requires using Oracle 11g and possibly using Visual Studio 2010 as well. Since you state that dotConnect for Oracle will work with VS 2010 Beta 2, does this also mean that the latest version of dotConnect for Oracle will work with .NET 4.0 Beta2? Does compatibility with one mean likewise with the other?

Thanks!

The .NET Framework 4.0 Beta 2 is supported in the current version of dotConnects.
Please let us know if you encounter any problems considering it.

Thanks for the reply.

One other thing. After looking through your website, I noticed there are two choices to go with when using dotConnect for Oracle. You can either use the E.F. or the Linq to Oracle. I see how your site recommends Linq to Oracle for certain situations. However, I thought Microsoft was supporting Linq to Entities but all other "Linq to"s where not being supported any longer.

Is this true?

As far as we know, Microsoft does not plan to deprecate LINQ to SQL in future releases. See this link for more information:

Also please note that we do not depend on Microsoft in this situation and we plan to improve our LINQ to SQL
implementation because it's a promising ORM technology.

I know. I kicking up an old, old thread but....

We are going to be using the 5.60 version of dotConnect for Oracle so we can develop an application using VS 2010 and Oracle 11g. We already have a license for dotConnect for Oracle 5.20. Do we need to get a new license for version 5.60?

Also, is there a license file that comes with a purchased version of dotConnect or is licensing done another way?

Thanks!

Provided that your one-year subscription did not expire when dotConnect for Oracle 5.60 was released, you may download it from Registered Users' Area:
http://secure.devart.com/

Otherwise, you will need to renew your subscription. For details, please see the Ordering page at our site:
http://www.devart.com/dotconnect/oracle/ordering.html

There is no license file for dotConnect for Oracle, as the assemblies from the trial and licensed versions differ. The registered users receive a letter with credentials for Registered Users' Area, where they can download the licensed version.

However, you should add proper technical license to your projects using dotConnect for Oracle to deploy them. For information on how to do this, please refer to the Licensing and Deployment topics of our documentation:
http://www.devart.com/dotconnect/oracle/docs/Licensing.html
http://www.devart.com/dotconnect/oracle/docs/Deployment.html
