11:15 AM Saturday Room: 8401This beginner-level session introduces how .NET programmers can start building applications for Oracle databases. It discusses how to query and modify their Oracle databases using Visual Studio; query and modify data via ADO.NET and Entity Framework; store ASP.NET state inside an Oracle database; and build C# and VB.NET Oracle stored procedures. Step-by step demonstrations will illustrate these concepts.
3:30 PM Saturday Room: 4218Learn how to use Oracle Database with these latest .NET technologies: Entity Framework, LINQ, and WCF Data Services. This session features step-by-step demonstrations that build an Entity Data Model (EDM) from an Oracle schema, query that EDM with LINQ, perform data manipulation on the EDM, and generate an Oracle schema using Entity Framework. In the EDM demonstration, you'll see how to build a WCF Data Service that uses the Open Data Protocol (OData) to expose and consume Oracle Database data over the Web.
