How to: Include a Custom Assembly in a BDC Feature
Your project can reference assemblies from other projects in the same solution. However, you must add these assemblies to the feature file of the project by using the Assign referenced assemblies to LobSystems dialog box.
To include a custom assembly in a Business Data Connectivity (BDC) feature
