Problems with reverse engineering with Oracle

Post by tecnicidtp » Wed 09 Oct 2013 16:18

we're trying to evaluate dotConnect for Oracle to use as a provider for MS ADO .NET Entity Framework; we're facing with some issues with Oracle 9.2 ( ) in reverse engineering an existing db.
When we try to generate the model from db, we get an exception System.Data.EntityCommandExecutionException; the inner exception is Devart.Data.Oracle.OracleException with Oracle error ORA-00904: "DROPPED": invalid identifier.

Looking at supported Oracle version for dotConnect as Entity Framework provider, we find minimun version is Oracle, so it seems that our version (Oracle ) is ok, but actually it doesn't work.

Thank you for the report. There is a known issue related to work in EDM Wizard with Oracle 9.2. We have fixed it and we will inform you when the corresponding build of dotConnect for Oracle with this fix is available for download.
