Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.SqlServer.Abstractions is a small package containing abstractions which may be useful for applications in places where a dependency on the full Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.SqlServer is not desirable.


This package is included automatically as a dependency of the main Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.SqlServer package. Usually, the abstractions package is only explicitly installed in places where it is undesirable to use the main package. For example, it can be installed to use HierarchyId in POCO entity types which are otherwise independent of EF Core.
