After installing the ODT and updating it after to work with VS2012 to ODAC 188.8.131.52.20 with Oracle Developer Tools for Visual Studio on the same Oracle Client Home
I was able to create the EDMX model , but the synonyms stayed hidden to me on the wizard of the VS (by the way at VS 2010 also) .
The connection works perfect and gets me the regular tables , views and stored procedures .
The trouble is with the rest .
From my approach to Oracle I’ve got a couple of links and a statement that it’s Microsoft’s product that doesn’t support the import at the initialization wizard.
The links provided –
1) Make Entity Framework Designer support Synonyms – we are not Code First – the schema exists and running
2)A problem to view synonym of Oracle in the Entity Data Model Designer – can’t see the synonyms , not with dba not with any user ..
Any ideas will be appreciated!
