Usage without a database

Jan 13, 2014 at 8:48 PM

Would it be possible to reuse some of the functionality from this project without mapping to a database back-end? We have sensor data and metadata stored in an OPC server and would like to serve that over SOS. We are using a separate library to fetch data from the OPC server.

If possible, what functionality could be reused and what would we have to reimplement?

As long as you can populate the entities, you might be able to use it.

Please forgive my ignorance, as I am not familiar with Entity Framework and its usage.

How exactly would I populate the entities?

As far as I can understand from the solution, the entity classes are generated based on a database schema or similar, defined in the edmx file? Doesn't this mean the generated classes are tied to a database implementation?

Would I have to implement my own SosEntities class hierarchy that mimics the functionality of the auto-generated classes in the solution (Renci.Ogc.WebService.Sos.SosEntities etc), and instead calls to the OPC assembly for each query?
