dotConnect for Oracle 8.2.90 to 8.4.359 conversion

Post by John Liu » Fri 06 Mar 2015 19:26

I've been using dotConnect for Oracle 8.2.90 with EntityFramework 6.0.2 in production for over a year. I'm trying to move to dotConnect for Oracle 8.4.359. I am a little concerned that the replacement would break the stable production environment. Can anyone give me some guidance?
Is there anyway I can maintain two versions on the same machine one for production code and one testing the new version?
thanks
JL

In your development environment, uninstall v8.2.90 and install v8.4.359, remove old references
to Devart.* assemblies in your project and add the new ones:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Devart\dotConnect\Oracle\Devart.Data.dll
C:\Program Files (x86)\Devart\dotConnect\Oracle\Devart.Data.Oracle.dll
C:\Program Files (x86)\Devart\dotConnect\Oracle\Entity\EF6\Devart.Data.Oracle.Entity.dll

Also you should update the dotConnect for Oracle version in the *.config file of your application. Note that the revision number of provider in the entityFramework section is *.6 (8.4.359.6) but it should be *.0 (8.4.359.0) in DbProviderFactories.
