Entity Framework

Entity Framework (EF) is the recommend data access technology for new applications in .NET. It is an object-relational mapper that enables .NET developers to work with relational data using domain-specific objects. It eliminates the need for most of the data-access code that developers usually need to write.

Entity Framework 7 (EF7) provides a familiar developer experience to previous versions of EF, including LINQ, POCO, and Code First support. EF7 also enables access to data across relational and non-relational stores. EF7 is much more lightweight than previous versions and is built from the ground up to work great against .NET Core, in the cloud (using ASP.NET 5), on devices (i.e. in universal Windows apps) as well as in traditional .NET Framework scenarios.
