dotConnect Deployment (EF / Oracle)

Post by hfrmobile » Mon 30 Apr 2012 10:45

The documentation (http://www.devart.com/dotconnect/oracle ... yment.html) says, that it is only allowed to use "Minimal Installation" for target systems. But in that case DevArt.Data.Oracle.Entity.dll will not be installed to the GAC but that assembly is needed.

Is this just a mistake in the documentation or what other deployment strategy should we use for dotConnect / EF / Oracle applications?

Custom installation:
  • Required runtime assemblies
  • Support for ADO.NET Entity Framework
  • LINQ
Will work but I am not sure if it is allowed by DevArt/EULA? (not tested if LINQ is really necessary or not).

Thanks a lot for putting us to the right direction.

The LINQ option is not necessary for the ADO.NET/EF functionality.

These options are allowed by our licensing model to be chosen when installing dotConnect for Oracle on the target machine. We will correct our documentation concerning this issue.
