I use in my ASP.NET MVC application repository pattern and I use in controller for example 3 models:
public class HomepageController : Controller
private IWebsitesRepository _repository_websites = new WebsitesRepository();
private IFirmRepository _repository_firm = new FirmRepository();
private IPhotosRepository _repository_photos = new PhotosRepository();
In WebsiteRepozitory, FirmRepository and PhotosRepository classes I have:
Database1Entities _entities = new Database1Entities();
So I have 3 connections to database ? Is it wrong ? How can I solve it ?

We have an application which uses 'System.Data.OracleClient'. On the box it was developed we can change the TNSNAMES.ORA entries to connect to different oracle databases. Moving the code to a Microsoft Server 2008 box it would appear that the application ignores the TNSNAMES.ORA file. It has cached the first Oracle connection and will now work without any TNSNAMES.ORA file. Where is it getting the connection? We have set tns_admin to point at the TNSNAMES.ORA file. We can tnsping the connection OK.
Does anybody have links to relevant articles on how Facebook Connect integrates with the Membership provider?
I'd like to make a .net site where you can login through the membership provider, or the Facebook Connect system. But the big question is, how does your asp.net application know when the Facebook authentication has been successful. Without manually entering a username and password, is there a function to authenticate users and draw the profile info from Facebook's data?
It seems like a good system, but the documentation is sparse.

I have visual studio 2008 professional with the inbuilt crystal reports version 10 I think. I create everything from my laptop and IIS runs from my laptop as well.
I have created the most basic report to try and figure out a problem I have, anyways the report contains one database field that is it .... which I connect to by ODBC. I then create a web form add the crystal report viewer to the report and the crystal report source run the web page and it loads the data from the field as I would expect to the crystal report viewer !!
I have several ODBC connections setup on my machine one using integrated security the other using SQL authentication both are system DSNs. Now when I publish my application and access it from IIS and not the localhost I can access everything from my application ok except when I go to form that has the crystal reports I get this error (ODBC used here is the 'sa' account)
Logon failed. Details: IM002:[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified Error in File
If I use the other ODBC that uses Windows authentication I get this error message
Logon failed. Details: 42000:[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Cannot open database requested by the login. T
When trying to publish an InfoPath 2007 form template (as a Content Type), I am getting the following message with a UserName/Password dialog box:
Enter your credentials to connect to the following web service:
When I enter my credentials, the above dialog box appears again. I have carefully entered my credential. Another thing I noticed that despite this error I see the form got created at the destination library. The only thing is that the Content Type did not
get created and hence is not available in the "Site Content Type Gallery".
We are using Sharepoint 2007 enterprise edition. And I have recently published the InfoPath form templates several time as Content type without any issue.
Please help. Thanks........

I am trying to install reporting services and join it into existing service farm.
Main MOSS 2007 is on one pc, with config bases etc, while reporting services, reporting services db will be on other pc.
We are using same domain account to run sharepoint services and reporting services.
I've installed web part of MOSS on that other computer, also reporting services and sql server, set reporting services in integration mode.
Either way, it wont work for me:
If i am running the service of reporting services as Network Service account, then the /reportserver page will complain about some generic error "probably you dont have access to the farm if you are in integrated mode" etc....
I've read that i should include networkservice into a group WSS_WPG which i did, no luck anyway, same error
If i try to type the adress into the integration with reporting services in moss admin page, i will get error like "expected xml received html" and alot of red text.
If i switch service to run from domain account (the one that is used for running sharepoint on the domain) (we did the spn thing, didnt work either), the /reportserver page will open
