[DevExpress Support Team: CLONED FROM T698384: Web API data service for xaf app]1. I try the core version (https://github.com/GoshaFighten/XpoODataServiceCore)) but it never auto create the database like the earlier non .core version. Is there anything that I missed out?.
2. [DevExpress Support Team: CLONED FROM XPO - Web API and OData V4 Support]
I try to run in VS 2017 in IIS development mode but I get no result in browser. and no database is being created as well in SQL
In the How to implement OData4 service with XPO example, the database is created by calling the ConnectionHelper.EnsureDatabaseCreated method in the Global.asax.cs file. My XpoODataServiceCore example does not use this method. But, noting prevents you from using a similar code in the Program.cs or Startup.cs file to create your database.
In both the examples, the database is populated with sample data in the InitializeDatabase action of the ActionsController. If you need sample data, send a POST request to this action to generate it.
