How to workaround “Contains” for .net 3.5 don't support


I write a linq to Entity:

string[] groups = GetGroups(); var fList = from f in _store.wcf_ServerFarm join a in _store.ClientAccess on f.ServerFarmName equals a.AccessServerFarmName join s in _store.Service on f.ServerFarmName equals s.ServerFarmName where groups.Contains(s.ServerMachineName) select new { f.ServerFarmAddress, s.ServerMachineName, s.ServiceName, s.ServiceConfig, s.ServicePath };

But .net 3.5 didn't support Contains(), I couldn't upgrade it for some reason. how to figure out it. I try to use "Any(), esql" and so on ,didn't work. Thanks!

Internally it builds a query concatenating a lot of OR operators. No better workaround is probably available for LINQ in EFv1. <a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb386895%28v=VS.90%29.aspx" rel="nofollow">Entity SQL</a> should work without problem.
