Information On Entity Framework.

Entity Framework is an open source object-relational mapping framework for ADO.NET. It was a part of .NET Framework, but since Entity Framework version 6, it is now separated from .NET framework. Entity Framework serve as an object-relational mapper, enabling .NET developers to work with a database using .NET objects, and eliminating the need for most of the data-access code they usually programmer need to write.

One of the thing I would like to talk about is Entity Framework Core can access many different databases through it's plug-in libraries, these are called called database providers. Data Provider are used to connect to a database, executing commands, and retrieving results. For example, SQL data provider for SQL, Oracle data provider for Oracle, and you have OLE DB data provider for access & excel.

Entity Framework uses a provider model to allow Entity Framework to be used to access many different databases. There are links below with more information how this is done.
