TFS issue with dotConnect/Entity Developer

TFS issue with dotConnect/Entity Developer

Postby fphilipsen » Fri 06 Jul 2012 10:44

Dear DevArt team,

We utilize the following software in combination with VS 2010.
- dotConnect for Oracle 6.80.350
- Entity Developer 4.3.178.0

Recently we moved from VS 2008 + SVN to VS 2010 + TFS. No real issue there, but we found that the integration of Entity Developer with TFS doesn't work very well. If for example we change a stored procedure in our model explorer and subsequently perform a "Run Custom Tool" to generate new files, then all the newly generated files are not properly checked out. Some of the files, such as .edps, .view are changed and that is reflected by TFS, but all the DataContext files still appear as unchanged, even though if you do a compare the files are different.

At the moment this causes partial checkins and breaks our builds.

Is this a known issue, or are we perhaps missing something. This did not happen by the way with VS 2008 + SVN.

Thanks in advance.

Thank you. To add to my original post. This is not limited to modifying stored procedure, also simply adding a new property (i.e. column) to a class (i.e. table) causes some of the files to be checked out (same as mentioned below), but the main <datacontext>.<class>.cs file is not shown as modified. When performing a checkin other users will get errors that the newly added property does not exist.

Anyway, thank again for investigating. I'll be following this thread.

The code in the <datacontext>.<class>.cs file is regenerated only after you press the Save (Save All) button in Visual Studio when the active window is a diagram of the model. Does pressing Save (Save All) help?

No, that makes no difference. The following files are checked out:

- <datacontext>.edps
- <datacontext>.info
- <datacontext>.lqml.view
- <datacontext>.<datacontext>.lqml.view

The other files still appear to be unchanged (i.e. lock symbol shows), even though if I do a TFS compare they are clearly different. The "code generation timestamp" in each file is different for all these files, but not detected by TFS as a change apparantly.

We only have the following available in our registered user area:

dotConnect for Oracle Professional 6.80.350 26-Apr-2012 Renew now
dbMonitor Standard 3.00.3 16-Sep-2010

I believe Enity Delevoper is part of or included in dotConnect. We don't have Entity Developer available as a separate download.

How can I integrate this with the dotConnect 6.80.350 version we are using?

Thanks in advance.

This is correct. Entity Developer for dotConnect is bundled with dotConnect for Oracle Professional Edition.

Please contact our Sales department (sales at devart*com) and provide the e-mail you have used during the product registration to update (if possible) your credentials for accessing the latest version of dotConnect for Oracle.

I contacted the sales department and they activated the option to download the latest dotConnect version with the TFS bug fix included.

I upgraded our projects and it works as expected now. All files are automatically checked out when new files are generated.

Thanks for your support and help. Good stuff.
