Adding Packages to the Project

For our example in this chapter, we will create a Windows Forms application. Other types of applications differ from it, but the principles of working with Firebird via Entity Framework remain the same.

Adding Packages to the Project

The first task after creating a Windows Forms project is to add the following packages to it, using the NuGet package manager:

  • FirebirdSql.Data.FirebirdClient
  • EntityFramework
  • EntityFramework.Firebird

Right-click the project name in Solution Explorer and select Manage NuGet Packages from the drop-down list.

Find the packages listed above in the Nuget catalogue and install them in the package manager.
