Discussion of open issues, suggestions and bugs regarding ADO.NET provider for Oracle
4 posts • Page 1 of 1
Is there any way to add the OraDirect provider to the list of providers available in Server Explorer? If this is not possible I see no way to base strongly typed datasets on OraDirect. This is one of the most valuable features of VS 2005, so if not possible it would be a very serious problem for us. Barring that, is there another way to get strongly typed datasets to use the OraDirect provider while maintaining the ability to have VS regenerate the dataset code?
So the code for the strongly typed dataset is created by the dataset wizard? Is the code generated in this way exactly the same as the equivalent Microsoft-generated code? Does it get run through the same code generation engine or is this generated solely by CoreLabs? Also, is there a tool for generating these strongly typed datasets outside of Visual Studio? I've had a few problems with the OraDirect VS add-in and would rather not use it.
