Practical Microsoft .NET, SharePoint, and TFS from the Field
While I was working on a SilverLight 4 demo I found out that Entity Framework is not supported directly through the .NET provider or ODP tools.

So far, I've been very happy with the DataDirect ......

I was stumped for a little while until running across this article. For those without a background in Oracle development, this was a nice introduction for beginners. http://blogs.msdn.com/kaeva... ......
