Column and Table comments

Post by pcrissman » Mon 19 Oct 2009 19:46

We have comments in Oracle at column and table level. When I bring the tables into Entity Developer I was expecting the Summary or Long Description to have been pre-populated with the comments defined in Oracle. What is the expected behavior here? We'd like to have this information available in Metadata, but really didn't want to have to type it in again if already available in the db.

We are running latest build - 2.20.38

Thanks,

Pam Crissman

We will investigate the possibility to implement this functionality.
I will let you know about the results of our investigation.

This is working now. One caveat: carriage returns in the Oracle comment are imported into the EF Designer and DO get generated out to the .cs code file -- which is a problem, because the second line of the comment is not prefixed by /// in the .cs code and introduces a compile error. I had to remove the CR from the EF Designer version of the comment and then the generated .cs file was fine.

The problem is fixed in the latest build of dotConnect for Oracle.

I have got to say that you guys are the most responsive group when it comes to fixing bugs. Many of the problems I have posted about have specifically been addressed in a subsequent release of your dotConnect for Oracle or Entity Developer products. This one wasn't even a complaint and you fixed it anyway. Thank you! Please keep up the great customer service, you guys are awesome!

is it possible to add an option in the naming rules screen when reversing a DB deciding where to generate the DB comment, either in the summary element, or in the longdescription element (or both...) ?

best regards

This functionality will not be available in the near builds.
We don't have any timeframe for the implementation of this feature.
