ASP.NET Core : Configure project.json File To Support Entity Framework Core

In the previous post we created the DbContext for the Northwind Cafe application.  In this post we will configure the project.json file to support Entity Framework Core.

Here are the steps:

1.  Open the project.json file





















2.  Add the following lines i "dependencies" section of the project.json file


"Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.SqlServer": "1.1.0",
"Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore": "1.1.0",
"Microsoft.Extensions.DependencyInjection.Abstractions": "1.1.0",
"Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.Tools.DotNet": "1.0.0-preview4-final"




3.  In the "tools" section add the Microsoft.EntityFramework.Tools like the lines below

    "Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.Tools": {
      "version": "1.0.0-preview1-final",
      "imports": [
        "portable-net45+win8+dnxcore50",
        "portable-net45+win8"
      ]
    }

4.  Your project.json file should look like the markup below up to this point.  Since, ASP.NET Core is still in release candidate two version things are changing constantly, therefore the configuration have to changed frequently.  Hopefully things will settle down and we can all the do the same things to get things to work.  But for now we have to keep up to date on the changes and it could be a pain at times.

{
  "dependencies": {
    "Microsoft.NETCore.App": {
      "version": "1.0.1",
      "type": "platform"
    },
    "Microsoft.AspNetCore.Diagnostics": "1.0.0",
    "Microsoft.AspNetCore.Server.IISIntegration": "1.0.0",
    "Microsoft.AspNetCore.Server.Kestrel": "1.0.1",
    "Microsoft.Extensions.Logging.Console": "1.0.0",
    "Microsoft.AspNetCore.StaticFiles": "1.1.0",
    "Microsoft.AspNetCore.Mvc": "1.1.1",
    "Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration.FileExtensions": "1.1.0",
    "Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration.Json": "1.1.0",
    "Microsoft.Extensions.DependencyInjection.Abstractions": "1.1.0",
    "Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore": "1.1.0",
    "Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.SqlServer": "1.1.0",
    "Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.Relational": "1.1.0",
    "Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.Tools": "1.0.0-preview4-final"
  },

  "tools": {
    "Microsoft.AspNetCore.Server.IISIntegration.Tools": "1.0.0-preview2-final",
    "Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.Tools.DotNet": "1.0.0-preview4-final"
  },

  "frameworks": {
    "netcoreapp1.0": {
      "imports": [
        "dotnet5.6",
        "portable-net45+win8"
      ]
    }
  },

  "buildOptions": {
    "emitEntryPoint": true,
    "preserveCompilationContext": true
  },

  "runtimeOptions": {
    "configProperties": {
      "System.GC.Server": true
    }
  },

  "publishOptions": {
    "include": [
      "wwwroot",
      "web.config"
    ]
  },

  "scripts": {
    "postpublish": [ "dotnet publish-iis --publish-folder %publish:OutputPath% --framework %publish:FullTargetFramework%" ]
  }
}
