using “Telerik OpenAccess ORM
2010.2.714.1” (“Classic”) in the data layer (a VB.NET class
library) of a web application developed with Visual Studio 2008 SP1 and
Microsoft .NET 3.5.
configuration and mappings data of OpenAccess are stored in the App.config file
of the data layer class library. The DB is SQL Server 2005.
need to upgrade the application to Visual Studio 2017 and Microsoft .NET 4.5.2.
that Data Access has been discontinued and that the best solution is to use
another ORM like Microsoft Entity Framework, but now I don’t have the time to
switch to Microsoft Entity Framework because the application is very large.
need a solution to upgrade in a fast way from OpenAcces to a Data Access
version compatible with Visual Studio 2017 and Microsoft .NET 4.5.2
without (or small) modifications of the current
source code, classes definitions (<Telerik.OpenAccess.Persistent()>
<Serializable()> Public Class) and DB schema. With Visual Studio 2017 I have installed the last
version of Data Access NuGet Packages in the data layer class library and the
reference to the new DLLs have been automatically updated, but there are many
compilation errors. What are the right steps to upgrade the OpenAccess version
in a fast way?
can anyone help me?
