Breeze Data Management for .NET Servers

Breeze is a library that helps you manage data in rich client applications. If you store data in a database, query and save those data as complex object graphs, and share these graphs across multiple screens of your JavaScript or C# client, Breeze is for you.

Client-side querying, caching, dynamic object graphs, change tracking and notification, model validation, batch save, offline … all part of rich data management with Breeze. Breeze clients communicate with any remote service that speaks HTTP and JSON.

Breeze lets you develop applications using the same powerful idioms on the client and server. You can

  • query with a rich query syntax
  • navigate the graph of related entities
  • track changes as you add/change/delete entities
  • perform client-side validation
  • save all changes in a single transaction
  • use the same entity model on the server and client

Install from NuGet

.NET Framework

For .NET Framework, find the following packages in NuGet.

Note: Version 2.0.2 and above are for .NET Framework 4.8; versions below that are for 4.7 and below.

For a typical EFCore application, you would install the first two packages. For an NHibernate application, install the first package and Breeze.Persistence.NH. The last two packages are dependencies that are automatically installed by the other packages.

.NET Core

See the docs for .NET Core NuGet packages


See the docs for more info about what Breeze does and how to use it.

Set the release notes for changes in the latest version.


See some examples of how to use Breeze .NET server with clients written in Angular, Aurelia, React, and Vue in the Northwind-Demo.

See the TempHire application for a richer example showing proper architectural patterns.

Upgrading from .NET Framework to Core

The underlying concepts are the same, but there are a few major changes

  • The ContextProvider class is now PersistenceManager.
  • The [BreezeController] and [EnableBreezeQuery] attributes have been replaced by [BreezeQueryFilter] attribute.
  • Breeze JSON query format is preferred over OData. You will need to use Breeze 2.x on the client, and use the UriBuilderJsonAdapter (not the UriBuilderOdataAdapter).

See the Northwind-Demo for steps to set up a new .NET Core server.

See the UPGRADE document for information on upgrading Breeze Client from 1.x to 2.x.
