What is Entity Framework?

Entity Framework is an Object-Relational Mapper (ORM) development tool, that enables the Software Developer to write less data code faster, and focus more on the software logic instead of the underlying database.

In plain words, with Entity Framework, you can easily connect your .NET C# apps to SQL Server databases and efficiently access data using any of the available Entity Framework workflows.


Available Versions of Entity Framework

Currently, there are two versions/architectures of Entity Framework:

  • Entity Framework 6.2 which runs on .NET for Windows
  • Entity Framework Core which runs on .NET Core


Available Entity Framework Workflows

The available workflows in Entity Framework 6 are:

  • Code First
    • With new database
    • With existing database
  • Model First
  • Database First

The available workflows in Entity Framework Core are:

  • Code First
  • Database First
