"Generate from DB" does not show Oracle Data Source

Post by nikiforov » Wed 02 Nov 2011 16:47

I installed Entity Framework support from dotConnect for Oracle Trial and trying to generate model from db. The dialog shows only SQL server data providers, while documentation states that there should be "Devart dotOracle" provider as well.

Did I miss anything during install? Please advice.

Thanks

1. Make sure that you are using the Professional edition of dotConnect for Oracle. You can check this via Tools > Oracle > About menu of Visual Studio.
2. In the Solution Explorer right-click on the project and choose Add > New Item. In the dialog choose Devart Entity Model (or ADO.NET Entity Data Model), click Add. This launches the corresponding wizard.

We recommend using Entity Developer (Devart Entity Model, *.edml).

My initial installation was for Pro Trial with only "Entity Framework" support selected. None of the dialogs suggested presence of the DevArt component. I re-installed complete Pro Trial and I can see Oracle data source now.

Thanks
