Entity Framework with Oracle8

Post by stoph » Fri 01 Aug 2008 08:54


I tried to use the entity framework with an Oracle8
database. I got an error that it is only supported with
Oracle9.2 or later.

Will Oracle8 be supported?

Thank you,

No Oracle 8 support is planned in the nearest future.

You are right, OraDirect .NET supports Oracle server 8i. But Entity Framework is supported with Oracle server or later.
