    Does OpenAccess support .net 2.0 and vs 2005?

    http://www.telerik.com/products/orm.aspx :

    Visual Studio Integration

    Leverage a familiar environment. The powerful wizards will allow you to set up a persistent model with just a few clicks. Use datasources for all platforms to do most of the work codelessly. OpenAccess is fully integrated into Microsoft Visual Studio 2005/2008/2010 and supports all IL compatible languages. OpenAccess supports full source code control in TFS or any other SCM system

    OpenAccess ORM

    Visual Studio
    2010 only
    if vs 2005, so should .net 2.0!!
    But after downloading free version and wasting some time i found what:
    http://www.telerik.com/help/openaccess-orm/developer-guide-integration-prerequisities.html :

    Telerik OpenAccess ORM Requirements

    • Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 or later version.
    • Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2008 SP1 or later version.

    So please, update texts on your resources to avoid disappointing peoples.

    Hello Ilya,
    Thanks about your observation. As a matter of fact we still support VS2005, and definitely the runtime is still .NET 2.0 but those are valid only for OpenAccess Classic (the old API that is available for a long time). What is not supported in .NET 2.0 and VS 2005 are: the new designer, Fluent API, part of the OpenAccessContext API including FetchStrategies (we do have a OpenAccessContextBase though), LINQ. Since we have plans to decomission the VS2005 support starting next year, we are about to remove all statements that actively promote using OpenAccess in VS2005. Thanks again for the observation, I've updated your Telerik points.

    If I need .net 2.0 orm, can I use OA?
    Can I use it with free OA version?

    Hi Ilya,

    You can use OpenAccess ORM with .NET 2.0, as long as the limitations described in the previous post are not show-stoppers for your scenario. Basically you will be using the product as it has been several years ago since the new features are targeting mostly Visual Studio 2008 and 2010. 

    Unfortunately, you will not be able to use the free edition with VS 2005, since it supports only VS 2010.

    Documentation regarding the usage of OpenAccess Classic can be found both in our CHM help file deployed with the product and online. I recommend you also the Step-by-Step tutorial which is offered here for download in PDF format.

     

    Kind regards,
