Application Field

Great tool. Saved me tons of time.

I'm using Entity Framework as my Data Access Layer in a multi tier design.

When updates are made to a table using EF, the application column is populated with "EntityFrameworkMUE". This value is being generated by SQL Server function APP_NAME().

I want to save the actual application name, in other words the Web Application that makes the call to the Data Acess layer and not EF.

Can this be configured?

I was wondering if anyone else has resolved this type of issue.

To answer my own question, yes this can be configured. Just need to incude "Application Name=[someapp]" in the SQL Conneciton string used by EF.
