Quick Start Example

Configuration through Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration

Session factory setup
namespace MyApp.Database
        public class MyDbSessionFactoryBuilder
                private readonly ISessionFactory _instance;

                public ISessionFactory Instance
                        get { return _instance; }

                public MyDbSessionFactoryBuilder(IConfiguration cfg, string configSectionName = "MyDatabaseConnectionSettings")
                        var configuration = Fluently.Configure();
                        configuration.InitializeFromConfigMsSql(cfg, configSectionName);
                        _instance = configuration.BuildSessionFactory();
IConfiguration settings example based on appsettings.json
        "ServerName": "Server name",
        "DataBaseName": "data-base name",
        "UserName": "user name",
        "UserPassword": "password",

Configuration through *.config files

Session factory setup
namespace MyApp.Database
        public class MyDbSessionFactoryBuilder
                private readonly ISessionFactory _instance;

                public ISessionFactory Instance
                        get { return _instance; }

                public MyDbSessionFactoryBuilder(string configSectionName = "MyDatabaseConnectionSettings")
                        var configuration = Fluently.Configure();
                        _instance = configuration.BuildSessionFactory();
Configuration file
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
                <section name="MyDatabaseConnectionSettings" type="System.Configuration.NameValueSectionHandler, System, Version=1.0.5000.0,Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089" />

                <add key="ServerName" value="Server name" />
                <add key="DataBaseName" value="data-base name" />

                <add key="UserName" value="user name" />
                <add key="UserPassword" value="password" />

Additional configuration options

Option Name Type Description
Port int Database port number
ShowSql bool Executed SQL queries can be displayed in console/(VS output window) by setting ShowSql option, default values is false

Custom NHibernate configuration

Can be specified via lambda extension, for example, a custom dialect

configuration.InitializeFromConfigMsSql(configSectionName, c => c.Dialect<MsSql2012Dialect>());

Session lambda extensions for data retrieval


var user = session.GetSingleObject(x => x.Name == "FooName");
var users = session.GetList(x => x.Name.StartWith("A"));
