ODP.Net Managed Provider Beta, NAMES.DEFAULT_DOMAIN from sqlnet.ora fails

Hello all

I downloaded the odp.net managed provider beta 11.2.0.3.50. It seems to be working fine, but it fails to pickup the names.default_domain parameter in sqlnet.ini. Is this a known bug? If not, should I report my findings somewhere other than here?

A short example:

NAMES.DEFAULT_DOMAIN = world

is set in sqlnet.ora

Using the oldfashioned odp.net I would then put the following in the connect string: *"User Id=/;Data Source=mydb;"* and this would work because of the default_domain parameter. With the managed provider beta, I have to put *"User Id=/;Data Source=mydb.world;"* in the connect string for it to work. This means, if this behaviour persists beyond the beta phase, that migration to the managed provider will be a bit "unsmooth".

Any thoughts?
