First thing I want to say, after some time of evaluating DO4.2 I am quite impressed with our work!

The other thing, as title says, is there a way to explicitly specify (like in the FieldAttribute(FieldMapping=..)) the association table-name for many-to-many collections? It is meant for legacy DB where I have already association tables in place.. DO uses the table with the name <entitytype1name><collectionpropertyname><entitytype2name> which I want to 'override'.

Thanks, David

Hello David,

Unfortunately, this is not implemented yet.

DataObjects creates on a many-to-many assocation an "association table" with a composite name: <entitytype1name><collectionpropertyname><entitytype2name>

In my case the name of the table is: "dbo.ContactGroup-Z_ContactGroupContactList-Contact".

In our application we got database guidelines and we want to change the name of this table.

Is there already a possibility to define the name of the association table?

Thanks, Marco, for your answer/comment update.

The issue is in our task list, although it is not included in the upcoming release (4.4).
