OpenAccess has two levels of abstraction when working with our domain model.
The conceptual level works with Entity types that can/should map to tables on relation level.
You can freely rename Entity types using our visual designer (by selecting an Entity and editing its properties) or Batch Operations dialog (very useful for bulk renames
) without affecting the mapping between the entity type and the underlying relational database.
If you really need to rename the relational table from the OpenAccess designer you should do the same with the database using an approach similar to the one described in the "Pushing Domain Model Changes to the Database
" section of this article
. Otherwise you will get runtime exceptions that a table is missing from the database.
If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to post them here in the forum or in our support system.
All the best,
the Telerik team
