XML unsupported data type?

Post by mdb » Tue 01 Sep 2009 18:08

Hello all,

I am using Entity Developer to create an Entity Framework model from an existing PostgreSQL database. One of the columns is of datatype 'xml', which I believe is an official, out-of-the-box, supported data type as of PostgreSQL 8.3, if not sooner.
When attempting to add the table in question to the model, I get the following error:

"The column 'column1' has unsupported data type 'xml'. Cannot create class for entity 'tablename'."

Am I doing something wrong, or is there an extra step I need to go through or something?

I'm using the latest .39 version, PostgreSQL v8.3.

The XML type for PostgreSQL is not supported yet in Entity Developer. We will implement this support in the near future.

We have added the XML type support.
Look forward to the next build of dotConnect for PostgreSQL.
