Unfortunately it is not possible to join several databases in one model using Telerik OpenAccess ORM
. For any database you will have to create a separate Domain Model
and implement the links between different databases in your own business logic.
Our recommendation is to have one model per connection string, as this is the most optimal way for OpenAccess to work. This way the whole metadata for a database is kept at one place in the internal metadata cache.
It is also possible to split one database to several models but this requires some additional code and we suggest it only in more special cases, for example when dynamic modules using different parts of the database are used.
If you need additional guidance or if you need any further assistance with OpenAccess ORM
, please let us know.
