how to get column comment into EDMX ?

Postby 2ns » Thu 05 Sep 2013 15:51

We are testing Devart dotConnect for Oracle in place of ODP for our new developments.

We are working with Database first : generation of the edmx and the classes with the database.

We want to get the Comment of the table columns in the edmx, but we don't manage to get it whith Devart dotConnect (don't work with ODP too) ! :cry:

Is-it possible ?
How to do it ?

Thank you for any response...

(sorry for my poor english!)

no reply?
do you confirm that it is not possible to recover the column comments in edmx using DataBase First with Devart?

if so, i think we'll still use ODP...

EDM Wizard doesn't provide support for getting database comments. Entity Developer, which is included in dotConnect for Oracle, allows getting database comments. We recommend you to create a Devart Entity Model instead of ADO.NET Entity Data Model using the Database Fisrt approach, and on the "Model properties" step of the Create Model Wizard select the "Use database comments" check box.

For more information about comparison of Entity Developer and Entity Data Model Designer please refer to http://www.devart.com/entitydeveloper/ed-vs-edm.html.
