  • With an Oracle provider for Entity Framework (http://blogs.msdn.com/adonet/archive/2008/06/05/entity-framework-provider-updates.aspx), you should be able to use an EDM model as your data source for an ADO.NET Data Service.

  • Basically what Marcelo is getting at above is that from a data service standpoint no changes are needed.  What you need to do is hook up the Oracle provider for the Entity Framework / ADO.NET and then follow the steps online in blogs and our docs for creating a service over the EF.  Stay tuned to the ADO.NET team blog for details of when providers for non SQL Server DBs are made available (http://blogs.msdn.com/adonet)
