I have got to say that you guys are the most responsive group when it comes to fixing
bugs. Many of the problems I have posted about have specifically been addressed
in a subsequent release of your dotConnect for Oracle or Entity Developer products.
This one wasn't even a complaint and you fixed it anyway. Thank you! Please keep
up the great customer service, you guys are awesome!

...Really like your product, by the way. I had previously used the EFOracleProvider
example provided by MS, and actually got that working in our system, but was it
ever slow!! Installing dotConnect for Oracle was easy, and the speed improvement
