I'm working on a .Net application that needs to read from an Oracle 10g database behind Siebel. In VS 2010 Server Explorer, I've created a connection using the OracleClient type connector with a reference to the Oracle TNS service name as the "server name." The "Test Connection" button shows that the connection is successful. However, in the Server Explorer, when I go to expand the Tables, no tables are shown. I know for a fact that there are 3000+ tables in the database (thanks Siebel). Anyone know what's happening here? I'd like to create an Entity Framework 4.0 Entity Data Model...
Thanks for the help!
I've had the hardest time trying to solve this issue myself. There's very little useful documentation on the subject. Once you create a data connection and tested the connection click "Ok" then open up the server explorer window. Right click on the new oracle data connection and select "Change View". By default "My Objects" are selected, try selecting "User Objects" or "All Objects". Once you do, you should be able to see all of the objects under the data connection sub categories.
Right click on connections, go to Filters, the "displayed schemas" property by default, it's your logon name to the connection. Change the schemas to dbo schema and update the property. Then you should see all the tables. It worked for me :)
