Oracle Connector Adapters for LightSwitch RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi 

    I am trying to find out what people have used to connect to Oracle database for their LightSwitch applications.

    I am in the process of building an application in LightSwitch 2011

    What would be helpful is to know what people have used in the past and if they would recommend using it.

    I did find one on the web from Data Direct.

    Has anyone used this, and did you have a good experience with it?

    I would like to know any thoughts you may have on how to get Light Switch application connected to oracle.

    I greatly appreciated anything you may share on this subject.

  • Hi Vivek

    Visual Studio Lightswitch can be persisted to an Oracle Database via the Entity Framework, you need to get a MySQL and a Oracle Entity Framework provider. Once you have those installed, you can change to that data provider inside the Add Data Source wizard.

    Many community members share their experience of connecting LightSwitch to Oracle, I think it will be also good reference for you,
