WCF Data services supoort Oracle DB?
@alduar - WCF Data Services is to some extent backend-agnostic, meaning that it needs to be bound to a data store somehow. WCF Data Services does play very nicely with Entity Framework, and there is an Oracle provider for Entity Framework, so I would imagine you could build a nice OData stack on top of Oracle fairly easily. I have not tried it myself.
Very happy to see support for DateTimeOffset. :)
Is there anyway for this to be consumed by a Windows Phone app? Currently I receive a "Can't cast to unsupported type 'DateTimeOffset'" exception when I attempt to update the entity.
DateTimeOffset is supported on the phone.
If you can post your question on the forums (
social.msdn.microsoft.com/.../threads ) ,
I'd be glad to help you get this resolved or debug further.
