Can I use dotConnect4Oracle+WebMatrix to connect to Ora DB?

Hi,

I am looking into starting some of my junior developers on WebMatrix development. Can we still connect to our Oracle database using dotConnect for Oracle in this IDE?

Thanks,

Rob.

It is possible to use the runtime of our provider with this IDE. For example, if you want to open connection to the Oracle database, follow these steps:
1. Add references to the Devart assemblies into your web.config:

Code: Select all


  
    
      
        
        
      
    
  
2. Embed your code within of your *.aspx page:

Code: Select all




    
        
        
    
    
        
        
            
        
        
    
It seems like only Express Edition of dotConnect for Oracle can be used with WebMatrix because there is no way here to generate the App_Licenses.dll assembly with this IDE.
