    Sample Entity Framework Provider for Oracle now Available


    This new sample builds on top of System.Data.OracleClient and showcases some techniques a provider writer targeting databases different from SQL Server can use.

    The code is not meant for production, just a sample directed to provider writers. It has also a few limitations related both to SP1 beta bits and with types not supported in OracleClient.
