When the Telerik
OpenAccess WCF Wizard shipped last month, it only worked with the Q2 version of
OpenAccess. The problem is that Telerik makes internal builds of a product available
in-between releases so developers can play around with new bits faster-and the OpenAccess
WCF Wizard did not work with them. Telerik
Internal Builds fix bugs out of band so lots of folks us them. The feedback we
got on the WCF Wizard is that the wizard should work with any version of OpenAccess,
including internal builds.
The latest version of the Telerik OpenAccess WCF Wizard does just that. Now when you
open the Wizard and you attempt to connect to a data access layer built by a version
of OpenAccess that the Wizard does not understand, a versions store dialog will come
up as shown below. The dialog will tell you what version of OpenAccess the DAL was
created with and you will have to navigate to the Telerik.OpenAccess.dll file and
add it to the versions store. You will also have to exit the wizard and come back
in. Once you have done so, you are free to use the wizard with that version of OpenAccess.
You will also be allowed to use older versions that are saved in the store.
