Mapping an Entity to Multiple Tables

Post by AndreyNikiforov » Mon 20 Dec 2010 18:45

Is there any way to map one entity to multiple tables?

Storage engine (InfiniDB in my case) has limitations on number of columns in each table, so I want to spread data between multiple tables. E.g. contact001, contact002 etc should be just one Contacts entity.

Unfortunately, we do not offer design time Entity Splitting support.
We are investigating the possibility to add it in one of the nearest builds, I will inform you about the results of the investigation.

Table Splitting is supported and can be easily (no manual editing of edml) made in Entity Developer: drag&drop particular (unnecessary or with big data) properties from table on the diagram surface and choose Table Splitting in the dialog. For more information about Table Splitting, refer to http://blogs.msdn.com/b/adonet/archive/ ... table.aspx.
