Dear Serge

I haven’t tested this yet.

However, given the fact pure EF is used under the hood, you should be able to provide your custom DbConfiguration [1] as you would using EF directly.

Regarding retrying execution strategy, however, there is an additional measure you need to take care of due to the limitations of this feature [2]. Since by default the data context is providing an ambient transaction scope, you probably have to override the CreateSavingTransactionScope-method in your data service to suppress the ambient transaction:
        protected override TransactionScope CreateSavingTransactionScope()
            return new TransactionScope(TransactionScopeOption.Suppress);
I would definitely be interested to read a short feedback of your experience you make in this.

Regards, Christof
