    I am new to OpenAccess. I am having one problem. Can any one help me with the following.

    I have two class user and role like following. I need to find out all the role which has specific user
    I was trying to do the following but getting error.  How can I do this?

    IObjectScope scope = ObjectScopeProvider1.GetNewObjectScope();

    var result = from r in scope.Extent<Role>()
                      join u in scope.Extent<User>()
                      on r.RoleDbId equals u.UserDbId
                      where u.UserName == "iivaan"
                      select r;


    foreach (Role role in result)

    Using a JOIN directly is currently not supported.

    public class User
     public int UserDbId;
     public String UserName = null;
     public IList<Role> roles = new List<Role>();


    public partial class Role
     public int RoleDbId = -1;
     public String RoleName = null;
     public IList<User> users = new List<User>();

    Hello Iftekhar Ivaan,

    You can use the Any() method to achieve this:
    var result = scope.Extent<Role>().
    Where(r => r.users.Any(u => u.UserName == 
    Another way is to retrieve the object and just use its Roles collection:
    User u = (from u in scope.Extent<User>() 
             where u.UserName == "iivaan" 
             select u).First(); 
    var result = u.roles; 
    Hope that helps.
