Issue updating data entities [Solved]

Jun 9, 2010 at 7:42 PM

We, at our company, are facing a "little" issue when updating data contracts. In those data contracts, we use some imports, which are updated as well, since appears a new version with everything new. The problem is, we cannot (should be read as don't know how) associate the new version of the dependency to the data entity. After updating in the operation and resource to the new version of the primary data entity, it still uses the first version, in the wsdl it still shows the old one, even after restarting both the catalog and the runtime.

We are using the December CTP

Can someone help with this?
